Telling people's stories
I became a journalist to tell people's stories. For the past 12 years I have worked as a journalist and communications officer in New Zealand, East Africa, South East Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific, specializing in media and communications for the United Nations and humanitarian agencies including UNEP, Oxfam, Red Cross and the Himalayan Trust.
As a journalist in New Zealand and Cambodia, I reported on daily news, sport and business for print and radio, as well as writing travel and adventure sports features for New Zealand newspapers and magazines. Below is a small sample of some of the extraordinary people I've met and adventures I've had along the way.
