She studied geology and art before moving to Ōtautahi Christchurch, where she works for New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and leads foraging tours in addition to her work as a writer. Liv has spent countless hours exploring Aotearoa with a curious eye for the flora, fauna and fungi that define this special place.
