I’m a journalist, writer, and broadcaster based in Wellington. In 2017 I spent time at the New York Times bureau in Hong Kong, and I now freelance for the Times from New Zealand.

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 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 spoken at literary festivals in New Zealand and Australia, and have chaired sessions at tech conferences about diversity, open source philosophies, free speech, and social media.


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.
