I’m an experienced freelance journalist and communications advisor with a focus on providing well-researched articles and targeted communications materials that keep readers engaged, enhance reputation and help publishers and organisations grow their business.
From feature writing and copy editing through to producing search engine optimised website content and drafting press releases – I deliver on brief and on time. I’ve completed many successful projects working with small businesses as well as large organisations including Tourism New Zealand, Auckland Museum, New Zealand Renovate magazine, Refresh Renovations, Westminster City Council, LGcommunications, Shell, Royal Mail, LIT Publishing and KTIV-TV (NBC affiliate).
Writing for consumer and business audiences, I’ve covered a wide range of topics including travel, leisure, health, luxury goods, interiors, art and culture, literature, architecture, market research and current affairs.
I produce well-written, clean copy for:
• magazines and newspapers
• books and book chapters
• corporate magazines, booklets and brochures
• marketing material including direct mail pieces, flyers, posters and ads
• press releases
• electronic newsletters
• company profiles
• case studies
• annual reports
• research reports.
I hold a masters degree in communication studies, and have worked in Germany, the US and the UK. Always curious, I’ve travelled extensively (Mongolia, Tibet and Nepal are favourites), explored the underwater world as a scuba instructor and peeked behind clouds as a private pilot.
Please call or email me to discuss your project - whether you need a communications advisor, feature writer, copywriter, editor or proofreader.
My work regularly appears in numerous publications and on websites – including in New Zealand Renovate magazine, Ricoh corporate magazine, Refresh Renovations newsletters and on the Tourism New Zealand website.
Editorial experience includes my current role as editor of New Zealand Renovate magazine and previous roles as editor of The Reporter, Westminster City Council’s resident magazine, and launching editor of LGcommunications News, a newspaper for local government communications professionals in the UK.
