About me

IMG_0820

I’m a freelance journalist, writer and cook living in the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne, Australia.

I spent my 20s living and teaching on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in the far north west of South Australia before returning to Adelaide to study cookery.

While working as a cook I learned so much about how a commercial kitchen operates and the addictive adrenaline rush of service time.  I loved it, but I also loved a flexible lifestyle. So I combined my love for learning with my talent for writing and cooking into a career.

While I was raising our first child in 2013, I studied journalism, undertook a food writing course and began writing about anything, at any opportunity.

I began volunteering for a university blog while studying, which quickly evolved into writing about education and research for the University of South Australia, as well as Indigenous education and boarding for Boarding Australia.

I have written for the Arabic International newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, The Murray Valley Standard, Coorong Realty and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

I have also created websites and written media releases for individuals and not-for-profit organisations like Seeds of Affinity – Pathways for Women.

I am always open to discussing future collaborations and opportunities with publications, organisations and individuals – please get in touch with me here.
