Hi! I’m a writer, researcher, and content strategist.
I make things easier to understand and use for agencies, brands, charities, Fortune 500 companies, publications, startups ...and anyone else who needs me.
I’ve been making content for over 8 years – in print, online, and for digital products and services.
My writing has been published by the Guardian, Tortoise Media, The Saturday Paper, WePresent, Bandcamp Daily, Hazlitt, ABC, SBS, VICE, Atlassian’s Work Life, Junkee Media, frankie magazine, Kill Your Darlings, GRIFFITH Review, The Big Issue and in other places.
I’ve also been a lead writer on content, campaigns and products for brands like Xero, Assemble Communities, QAGOMA/Tourism & Events Queensland, Sportsgirl, Canva, Queensland Government, Mercedes Benz, Australian Ballet, National Gallery of Australia, Natural State, and Westpac.
I love finding and partnering with subject matter experts to figure out stories that brands can’t tell on their own.
I’ve worked with experts in their field to promote knowledge-sharing across industries from NSW Department of Customer Service, Google, Atlassian, Telstra, ACMI, R/GA, Intercom, Kira Systems, Climateworks, Australia National University, The University of Queensland, Swinburne University, Western Sydney University, RMIT, ABC, Audiocraft, State Library of Victoria (SLV), Sydney Writers’ Festival, Sydney Review of Books, Dymocks, Booktopia, and ABC Radio National.
I trained as a filmmaker at Swinburne University, as a digital marketer at General Assembly, and as a writer and editor at RMIT.
I’m also an interviewer and contributing writer for LIMINAL Magazine, an online space that explores, interrogates and celebrates the Asian-Australian experience.
Want to work together? Great!
I can do other stuff, too.
I’ve comissioned and edited academic experts and gained them republication in national media outlets.
Sometimes, I create multimedia content for online audiences.
I can also join your cross-functional team as a collaborative plug-in, or provide independent services to help your organisation transform a big idea into reality.
If you’d like to work with me, comission me to write or build something, or say hello, you can e-mail me.
