Alexia is a highly respected food and travel writer. She writes regularly for Herald and Stuff Travel, as well as Kia Ora magazine. She has also written for overseas publications like BBC Travel, Time Out International and Broadsheet Australia.

Alexia is extremely passionate about the New Zealand food story (she also works part-time for Peter Gordon at his Food Embassy, Homeland) and does PR training for tourist operators helping them shout what they do from the rooftops - well from the newspapers and magazines anyway. She believes every New Zealand tourism business has a great story, sometimes they just need a little encouragement and help to tell it.
