I’m a journalist, writer, and broadcaster in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2017, I was based at the New York Times bureau in Hong Kong.
From 2006-2015, I worked at Radio New Zealand in various reporting, producing, editing, and presenting roles. I still fill in on air as a host from time to time, and do some work on the digital team.
As well as covering current events, I write and speak freelance about gender, sexual violence, body politics, social issues (especially inequality and social justice), literature, pop culture, and arts (especially dance and comedy).
I’ve presented at book festivals in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, and Newcastle, and have chaired sessions at tech conferences including NetHui and Open Source // Open Society.
I have taught journalism and public relations at Massey University, where I completed a Master’s in Journalism. My thesis covered the impact of gendered online harassment on high profile women in broadcast journalism. I also have a Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications, majoring in TV and radio journalism.
In the past, I’ve provided small NGOs and start-ups with help on blogging, social media, media relations, communications, marketing, media training, and strategy.
