Specialist in news media and PR for 15+ years around New Zealand, Dubai and London.

From journalism to growth hacking marketing and PR, I love working with people and telling stories via video, news media and social media.

If you’ve got a good story, I’ll find it and tell it in a way so others will share it, helping it go viral.
