I'm best known for...

There's no doubt I'm the go-to for those looking for the right word and snappy one-liners. But my personal claim to fame was being the sole reporter allowed access to a Maori occupation in Rotorua, and the applause I received for empathetic and well-balanced writing when the conflict came to an end. Lesser known is my gift for all but bumping into famous folk – think the Queen and the Dalai Lama – while reporting. It's a gift!
