I am a Content Officer at the Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
I update content on a number of websites the Ministry is responsible for, including NZHistory.net.nz
This is my first job out of university, although my role used to be mainly about updating content on Eventfinder.co.nz
Researching and writing about New Zealand’s history, especially when I get to go exploring the treasures at the National Library of Archives New Zealand.
When searching Auckland War Memorial Museum’s Cenotaph Database for stories to tell and seeing profiles of the thousands of young men and women who died in the First World War.
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in History from Victoria University of Wellington.
I enjoy reading fiction and non-fiction books, I study French, and I love exploring Wellington City on foot.
