Vanessa Johnson

Auckland, New Zealand


I've worked as a sub-editor, journalist, magazine editor, managing editor, account director and communications manager and that tells you nothing about my expertise as a waitress.

After taking a couple of years off to raise my/our son, I'm keen to get back to work. Freelance appeals to me most as I can do it from home and I want to try and achieve an ideal work-life balance. I'm a little sceptical about my chances but daycare looks promising at this stage.

I've lived in New Zealand for most of my life but have also lived for four years in Sydney and three years in London.

Interests: Varied interests most involving food, wine, occasional cigarettes - anything lifestyle oriented. Some sports, ie skiing, tennis, mostly as a spectator since becoming a mother.
