A bit about me.

 
 
 

purveyor of fine words

I’m a freelance copywriter, editor and journalist, which is less swashbuckling than it sounds. Mostly it involves sitting alone in a quiet room. Sometimes with a green tea.

A little about me. I’ve written travel and music features for Intrepid Travel, Red Bull, AWOL, The New York Times, Beat Magazine and Adventure.com. I’m a regular contributor for Smith Journal, and I was Deputy Editor at Urban List for an extremely delicious two years.

Now I’m a full-time freelancer, based in Melbourne. I write for print and digital publications, SMEs, start-ups and some of Australia’s biggest lifestyle brands.

Currently available for interesting commissions.

Uninteresting but lucrative commissions are also welcome.
