I’ve been a writer ever since my dad let me copy out letters to my Nanna on his manual typewriter.
I’ve worked in the nonprofit field, youth work, school teaching, and training. All of my employers have recognised my writing skills, and set me to crafting newsletters, training manuals, blog posts, letters, funding submissions, project proposals, and research documents. In between, I’ve written for pleasure, including social comment, fiction, poetry, podcasts, book reviews, and zines.
My long experience in teaching and youth work has left me with excellent communication skills, an enthusiasm for deadlines, and the ability to listen to what clients really want, as well as what they need.
I’m a keen bushwalker, reader, and when I get the itch, viola-player. I’m also a productivity nerd, which comes in handy when multiple deadlines come together. I live in Bendigo, a regional city in the centre of Victoria. Alongside freelance writing, I parent a two boys with Kylie, and work in the nonprofit sector, as well as serving as a local councillor for the City of Greater Bendigo. I was born in rural Gippsland, before moving to the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, where I developed a love for writing, hiking, and snoozing with a book perched on my belly.
