Email firstname.lastname@example.org with story tips (specific to me and my publication, no press releases thank you) or commissions of work. Due to time constraints I am unable to respond to messages outside of that; apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
Please do not add this address to PR or bulk mailing lists or third-party databases.
I am able to, in cases where it doesn’t clash with my own commitments, provide advice or contacts on stories you are writing about New Zealand, as long as your publication offers compensation and credit for contributed reporting. Because I receive a large number of these requests I am not able to contribute to pieces for free or uncredited.
Feel free to email me for my Signal number if you need it, or contact me via Keybase. I’m always happy to speak by phone, Skype, Signal or in person about story tips, so please mention in your email if you’d prefer to talk that way. I’m particularly interested in story ideas about New Zealand’s politics, international relations, or place in the world, and am still reporting pieces about the Christchurch mosque attacks. I can also be commissioned for tape sync jobs in Wellington, New Zealand.
If you are commissioning work, please include a specific budget for the job in your first email.
