Alliance Media Alliance Media

Most businesses who utilise Alliance Media to grow need blogs and webpages written. Some clients like to invest in getting fresh blog content every month. This is because a good blog returns massively successful SEO results. I’ve written blogs for clients in the industries of automotive repair, office furniture, catering, politics, ship repair, travel holidays and more.

 

NZME. / NZ Herald / Herald on Sunday NZ Herald

My first newsroom placement as a student journalist was at the Herald on Sunday. After working for the HOS, including reporting live from the 2014 general election and interviewing members of cabinet, I moved onto casual reporting shifts for what was then the newswire service which was absorbed into NZ Herald. I reported throughout 2014 and provided most of the content for campaigns including Pride of NZ Awards and WWI centenary commemorations.
