Welcome to my site. I write personal essays, reviews of women writers, and co-host the Dear Mamas podcast. This site collates some of my published writing in one place.

The rest of the time, I work as a children’s advocate and wrangle a toddler. In the past, I’ve been a magazine editor, policy analyst, Rhodes Scholar, Green MP, and volunteer.

I live in Petone (that’s our beach in the photo) with my partner Dave, our two-year-old daughter Esther, and a cat called Catface. I place a high value on coffee and good TV drama.
