Jazial Crossley is a writer, editor, journalist and communications manager based in Wellington, New Zealand.
I am a passionate wordsmith with experience as an award winning business journalist, a perfectionist magazine editor, a social media-savvy online writer and bespoke communications scribe.
Writing is a lifelong love of mine. I began publishing my work online in 1996 after teaching myself html. My first website was a band fansite then I moved into publishing my poetry, short stories and journals online – back before ‘blogging’ was a word.
I have reviewed music for various publications in New Zealand and Australia including Rip It Up, Faster Louder and Music Feeds. I have travelled internationally to write about New Zealand businesses operating overseas and have been the Editor of two magazines.
As a business journalist, I wrote for New Zealand’s top business media National Business Review, Fairfax Media including Sunday Star Times and Dominion Post. I focused on writing about property, women in business, entrepreneurs, food and beverage sector, NZ-China business relationship, the NZX and more.
I am results driven and specialise in writing content that sings while concisely communicating the messages that need to be conveyed. I bring strong strategic thinking and relationship management skills to my work in communications.
I live in Wellington with my fiancé and our miniature schnauzer.
