I'm a Melbourne-based journalist, editor and academic who's been working in the industry for the past 12 years.
I worked at The Age as a news reporter for five years, covering social justice, health, crime and was a sports columnist and TV reviewer for Green Guide.
I currently work as a freelance journalist for a wide range of publications, writing about social justice, culture, politics and travel for CHOICE, SBS, The Guardian, ABC, News.com.au, ABC, Overland, The Daily Telegraph, The Saturday Paper, Crikey, RendezView, The Conversation, Daily Life, Escape, Voyeur Magazine, Delicious, Women's Agenda, Whimn, Huffington Post, Good Weekend, Peppermint, MamaMia, Essential Kids, Slow Magazine, Time Out Melbourne, M Magazine and more.
I also teach journalism, writing and media at The University of Melbourne, have been a mentor to young emerging writers and have been a panelist and host at writers festivals across the country, including Canberra Writers Festival, National Young Writers Festival and Storyology. I've also delivered talks and workshops at schools and for corporate clients.
In 2017, I was selected for a prestigious Dart Centre Asia Pacific Fellowship, which focused on climate change and trauma reporting.
I am highly involved in the media industry, and co-founded Women in Media and was previously a trustee of the Media Safety and Solidarity Trust, which provides financial support to journalists and their families in high-risk countries such as Pakistan and the Philippines.
In my spare time, I study medieval and renaissance English history and watch Star Wars – a lot.
