Please feel free to email with story tips or commissions of work. 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, Zoom, Signal or in person about story tips, so please mention in your email if you’d prefer to talk that way. 

Due to time constraints I am mostly unable to respond to messages outside of news tips or commissions; apologies for any inconvenience this causes.  

For the same reason, I’m unable to reply to most PR I receive. Please don’t sign me up for PR mailing lists or third party media databases. I’m currently reporting current events stories about New Zealand’s politics, international relations and place in the world, and pieces about the Christchurch mosque attacks. I do not cover products and services, events, or (at the moment) arts or books stories. 

I’m able to, where it doesn’t clash with my other commitments, provide advice, contacts or additional reporting on stories you are writing about New Zealand, as long as your publication offers both payment and byline credit.

If you are commissioning work, please include the budget for the job in your first email. I can also be commissioned for tape sync jobs in Wellington, New Zealand.
