NZME. / NZ Herald / Herald on Sunday nz-herald.png

My first newsroom placement as a student journalist was at the Herald on Sunday. After working for the HOS, including reporting live from the 2014 general election and interviewing members of cabinet, I moved onto casual reporting shifts for what was then the newswire service which was absorbed into NZ Herald. I reported throughout 2014 and provided most of the content for campaigns including Pride of NZ Awards and WWI centenary commemorations.

Property Plus magazine property-plus-dutch-courage.png

This is a client for who I provide opinion columns in the real estate magazine Property Plus. A good column brings original content, informs the reader and puts a human face on the product being sold.

Write Up North

When I moved to Northland in 2015, the region had no online hub for creative writers. So I built from scratch and it is now the number one forum for Northlanders to publish creative writing and creative writing news.

A company which really puts heart into their content writing, Intelligent Ink got me to help creating case studies for a property management company as well as web content for Greg Holland jeweller.

Alliance Media Alliance Media

Most businesses who utilise Alliance Media to grow need blogs and webpages written. Some clients like to invest in getting fresh blog content every month. This is because a good blog returns massively successful SEO results. I’ve written blogs for clients in the industries of automotive repair, office furniture, catering, politics, ship repair, travel holidays and more.
