Birthdays are a great time for reflection. When I turned 29, I wanted to take with me 29 moments that set my soul on fire over the last 12 months of my life. Here they are…
The night sky in its obscurity + mystery is such a catalyst into boundless wondering for me. Usually, I think about people and connection.
And the night sky in its enormity in scale + beauty…well, I feel as though I could spend a lifetime capturing it and never feel like I’ve done it justice.
As we near the end of 2018, I am even more contemplative and reflective than usual and I feel so fortunate to have spent so much time under a starry night sky this year.
Here are my favourite night sky photos and some musings on people and connection.
My final week in the land of the long white cloud…
My third week was spent primarily hiking the Routeburn + Caples Tracks, during which I did A LOT OF THINKING. Like the most thinking I have probably ever done in my life and that is saying something, because I am one of the deepest and widest thinkers that you’ll ever meet…so for week 3, come on into my crazy mind…
The highlight of my second week in New Zealand was hiking the Kepler Track.

I have often wondered why I love art so much, when I wasn't brought up to, and why I have this insistent compulsion to indulge in my creativity…here are my thoughts xx
I am often asked about what gear I use in the outdoors when backpacking (which is hiking with everything you need in your bag for overnight + longer) so I thought I'd put together a very comprehensive list, divided into must-haves and nice-to-haves…
It’s so easy to get wound up in this big, busy world. The to-do list is ever-growing and it seems we’re on an endless quest to expand and upgrade. I’m guilty of it too. My chase revolves around a compulsion to explore new places. I catch myself thinking of adventures and destinations like they are collectible badges, and sometimes, the impulse is so great that everything else takes second place. It’s important, in these instances, to rebalance…
It took me a day or two to 'get' Christchurch...but the town definitely eventually won me over. This is a place of great diversity - there's the growing urban centre, the mixing of old English heritage and new up-and-coming culture and the ocean and the hills as an adventure playground. Here's what I got to over 3 days.
Though it wasn't the very first time anyone have ever laid eyes on Aoraki or Tititea, it was my first time, and I could feel it all; all the history, the inspiration, the power, the reverence, the intimidation. This totality of emotion, in stunning alpine environments, is what I live for...
One beautiful Saturday afternoon, I joined a group of 10 photographers, the digital marketing team of NSW National Parks & Wildlife and 2 Park Rangers for the Lockley's Pylon hike in the Blue Mountains.
These are my favourite podcasts and when to listen to them!
I have a love affair with this mountain town, that only grows in strength and complexity with each stay.
Every time I am here, it is like coming home.
So here are my recommendations for Queenstown xx
