We thought it was time you met the Good Team! We’re a small but passionate and dedicated team who care about the planet and people. We wouldn’t be out here without you, our amazing readers, so thank you for your support.
Recently the Good team hosted a Thank Good It’s Friday Facebook Live event so our wonderful followers could meet the team and chat all things good. Here’s the video if you missed it, as well as our team profiles so you can get to know us a little bit more.
Please note there is no video sound from 5:33 – 6:24, the joys of live streaming technology!
As editor of Good magazine I feel incredibly lucky, and purposeful, every day. The fact that I get to work for a title that stands for everything I believe in, including being kind to the Earth and others, is at the top of my daily gratitude list. I’ve done a daily gratitude list for years. Sometimes I write it down. Sometimes I do the list in my head or say it out loud as I drive to work. It’s a practise that never fails to make my day better. Talking long walks in nature, tending to my vegetable garden and doing yoga also keeps me grounded and connected, while enjoying a tipple of good wine is one of my favourite ways to relax. Travel and photography are also big passions of mine. I see picture compositions wherever I go, even on walks around the neighbourhood, and delight in framing a beautiful photo or capturing a moment. It’s fair to say I’m a little obsessed with Instagram, too!
I’m passionate about telling the stories of brands who innovate to do good, which is one reason why I love being the digital editor of Good! I start every day with a big glass of kombucha and finish with a yoga nidra style meditation. When I’m not on the hunt for a story or curating the Good Instagram feed, you’ll find me reading articles or listening to a podcast to keep up to date with what’s trending within the tech, wellness, beauty, and fashion industries.
When I’m not designing the pages of Good, you’ll usually find me at home which is where I love to be. I’ll likely be: practising yoga (in my lounge with the help of YouTube), pottering in the herb garden (I’ve tried growing vegetables with little success, but herbs I can manage!), reading in the sun with a cup of tea and a sweet baked treat (because what is life without treats), or, just getting home from a walk on a West Coast beach with my dog, Odin. Venturing further afield, I love to explore New Zealand. Discovering isolated spots and beautiful scenery makes me happy! I believe that by making small, positive changes in our daily lives is how collectively we will see change – Good encourages that which is why I love working here!
It is my absolute passion to see mindful businesses and entrepreneurs grow. I devote my life to the service of helping these businesses connect through their communication. I believe Good is the most conscious media vehicle the team and I could drive here in NZ. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me co-creating within my many communities on passion projects to help awaken and inspire humanity. I am also always working on my own self-development through Qigong and seeing different perspectives, expanding past the limitations of the mind and I love sharing my findings through journey meditations, personal awareness writing and speaking. In my life, there is a fair bit of dorky laughter, spontaneous outdoor adventure, ecstatic dancing like a crazy person and deep sharing over a cuppa. I believe the most important thing on Earth is how we connect to the environment wherever we are and I believe that is why people are inspired by the Good word.
