About me

I write sad, yet funny fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry. My subject is often my take on life in Germany as a New Zealander, a sort of insider-outsider point of view. I have read my poems and stories to audiences in Germany, Romania, England, and Australia. As a teacher, my mission is to inspire and motivate students to be at home in the language, recognise their own progress, and communicate clearly. I teach all levels and across all industries online and face to face, in mini-groups or individually. Get in touch, I’d be happy to hear from you.
