I’m a journalist, writer, and broadcaster based in Wellington, mostly reporting on New Zealand for the New York Times.

Since 2006,  I have worked at Radio New Zealand in various reporting, producing, editing, hosting, and social media/community engagement roles. I still fill in on air as a host from time to time.

As well as covering current events, I write and speak about gender, sexual violence, body politics, social issues (especially inequality and social justice), literature, pop culture, and arts (especially dance and comedy).

I’ve spoken at literary festivals and tech conferences throughout New Zealand and Australia.


Speaking at City Gallery, Wellington.


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.
