Dan Slevin

Dan Slevin – Editor

Dan Slev­in is a con­firmed Wel­ling­to­ni­an of long­stand­ing and a former ZM DJ, theatre pub­li­cist and cinema-own­er. After many years of enjoy­ing the people and places that make up the cap­it­al city, he is thrilled to be telling their stor­ies and cel­eb­rat­ing their tal­ents in Fish­Head.

In his spare time Dan writes movie reviews, theFuner­als & Snakes blog, fea­tures reg­u­larly on Radio New Zealand’s Nine to Noon and pod­casts the showRan­cho Notori­ous every week. He cries bit­ter tears of regret that he was born a West Ham sup­port­er and tweets obser­va­tions, bon mots and aph­or­isms at @danslevin.


Rachel Williams – Distribution Manager

Rachel Wil­li­ams is Fish­Head’s dis­tri­bu­tion man­ager. An Amer­ic­an with 15 years’ advert­ising exper­i­ence in three con­tin­ents, Rachel Wil­li­ams moved to Wel­ling­ton four years ago with her earth­quake sci­ent­ist hus­band, two boys and their poodle-ter­ri­er cross, Pebbles.

In the past, Wil­li­ams has been an unfunny stand-up comedi­an in San Fran­cisco, adop­ted a cat to Neil Young and lived in Guatem­ala – although she can only remem­ber one phrase in Span­ish, Mas cerveza por favor. Away from Fish­Head, her goal is to dine in every res­taur­ant in Wellington.


Vivienne Brown — Wellington Advertising Executive

Vivi­enne Brown is the new addi­tion to Fish­Head’s advert­ising team. A well-known Wel­ling­ton busi­ness devel­op­ment man­ager, she worked for Barter­card for 13 years as the company’s top sales exec­ut­ive. She has also been very act­ive in media sales, includ­ing tele­vi­sion, news­pa­per and radio.

Away from the office, Brown enjoys explor­ing devel­op­ing world des­tin­a­tions, pre­par­ing a cuppa over the camp­fire, snor­kelling with dol­phins, cyc­ling, or just relax­ing in her beau­ti­ful nat­ive garden at her Island Bay home, where she lives with her part­ner Cooper and lov­ing Burmese cat Gandolph.


Lisa Noble — Art Director

Lisa leads our design depart­ment. Her lifelong love of books, magazines, nice pens and all things beau­ti­ful has accom­pan­ied her through a 20-some­thing-year career in design stu­di­os and in her own busi­ness. A nat­ive Wel­ling­to­ni­an, Lisa has made the Top of the South her home since return­ing to her beloved Aotearoa from Spain, where she lived for 10 years. Although she some­times misses the European life­style, she strongly appre­ci­ates New Zealand’s nat­ur­al beauty, good for­tune and rel­at­ive calm. On her travels around the world, Lisa has gathered treas­ures such as retro fab­rics and table­cloths, let­ter­press print samples and quirky nic-nacs that make her eyes feel happy.

Annabelle Archibald – Graphic Designer 

Anna­belle has been design­ing with WildTo­mato for over a year and has loved every second of it. A design­er by trade, but an illus­trat­or by nature, Anna­belle is most happy cre­at­ing. She is thrilled to com­bine her love for print and pas­sion for design on a daily basis with this magazine. Out­side the office Anna­belle likes cups of tea, a good movie, sift­ing through old stuff and scrib­bling away in her notebook.
