I volunteer at both Devonport and Birkenhead Museums, as well as Auckland Council Archives.
I graduated with MA Hons in history from the University of Auckland in 1974 and also hold a Diploma from the New Zealand Library School. I worked as a librarian from 1975 to 2017.
In 2010 Random House published my ‘The North Shore; an illustrated history’ and have written a number of article and book reviews over the years. References to the articles are available from Index New Zealand – https://natlib.govt.nz/collections/a-z/index-new-zealand-innz
Also, I currently write a monthly local history column for ‘Channel’ magazine on the North Shore.
