Bio

Kia ora, I’m an award-winning New Zealand freelancer based in Wellington, our capital city.

I write and vlog about hiking and heritage travel; food and gourmet travel; and luxury and road trip destinations.

My latest travel stories explore stargazing in New Zealand for BBC Travel, fly fishing at Poronui Lodge, a luxury lodge in New Zealand, and US San Juan Island National Historical Park for Heritage New Zealand magazine.

In 2019, I received the IFWTWA Excellence in Journalism Award for a story on the food and cultural heritage of New Orleans.
