Creating beautiful images and words that count is what I do best. It's what I live for. Over the years I have written and shot for some of the most fascinating magazines and newspapers in the world. I love my job – well, it hardly seems like a job when it is so much fun.

I have been nationally recognised for my writing, winning a number of top awards for both my writing and my photography. Some of those publications I have had work published in, include Sydney Morning Herald (Australia), Marie Clare (France), Reader’s Digest (Australia), Sunday Star-Times (New Zealand), New Zealand Herald, New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, Cuisine Magazine (New Zealand), The Guardian (United Kingdom), US Yachting Magazine (United States), Femina (France), Next Magazine (New Zealand) and the Australian Woman’s Weekly (Australia), to name but a few.

I have also been involved in several books, including two children's books and three tourism orientated books, New Zealand The Millennium (1999), New Zealand – Land and People by Craig Potton (1999), and Our Place – Gisborne, East Coast (2001).
