I am a digital native // art journalist // visual researcher whose passion is to find the story in (just about) any subject and to create compelling content for online media. This can involve collaborating with an artist on writing their biography, drafting a snappy press release, interviewing the next big talent, covering the latest art trend, and even ghostwriting on behalf of commercial directors for a film job pitch.

As an image researcher I have worked with clients including Sorbent, Prius, Sony, Hyundai, Steinlager, Egyptian Tourism, SEAT, Fresh ‘n’ Fruity, Disney and New Idea and am no stranger to advertising agencies.

As a journalist, my articles have been published online for Format Magazine, Beautiful/Decay Art and Design Magazine, Normale Magazine, Messy Nessy Chic, and homify.com. You can read a few of them here.

I have also written texts for photographers Joanna Sprozch, Anne-Catherine Scoffoni and multi-media artist Ella Goerner.

Originally from the green pastures of Aotearoa (New Zealand), I moved to Berlin in 2011. After six long grey winters, successfully butchering the Deutschesprache and sweating it out in saunas, I have now relocated once again to a village in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Turns out I have a soft spot for colourful tiles, pastéis, good vinho tinto. Oh, and sun.

So! If you are looking for written (or visual) help for your project then get in touch. I love working with people who share my passion for telling authentic stories and sharing great images.

I write in (British + American) English, or we can communicate auf Deutsch, and if you have a lot of patience, falo um pouquinho de português…
