About Me I completed my undergraduate degree at Victoria University and my Masters in History at Auckland. My thesis examined home gardening in New Zealand between 1945 and 1970. After a period in the magazine and online marketing industries, I returned to study and gained a post-graduate diploma in Museum and Heritage Studies. Since then, I’ve been working as a contract research historian. Projects have included a range of organisations and topics, but have generally focused on New Zealand’s social and built heritage. I am a member of the PHANZA committee.
Specialities Social history and built heritage
Publications and Research 'The Captains and Crews of Liverpool's Northern Whaling Trade', International Journal of Maritime History, June 2010
