In 2010, I returned home from a stint overseas, finally ready to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a journalist. Whilst I'd originally dreamed of being a war correspondent
a la Marie Colvin, I settled for 'magazine feature writer' instead.
I cut my teeth writing profile pieces about young families who spent their free time campervan-ing around New Zealand and, as the publishing world moved into the digital media sphere, I was promoted to social and digital media coordinator. It was around this time I started blogging, a move which saw me become the fashion and beauty editor for
online teen magazine, 24/7 Girl.
After another stint overseas, during which I wrote mostly poetry and prose, I moved into the world of marketing - predominantly copywriting. I looked after content for Momentum Marketing, wrote for Remix Magazine and was the sole copywriter at Overland Footwear, during this time.
At the start of 2019, I made the shift into freelancing.
These days, you'll find me feature writing, copywriting, sub-editing, proofreading and mum-ing
in Auckland's Grey Lynn.
