About me

fullsizeoutput_743aI’m a freelance writer, primary school teacher 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 embarked on combining my talent for cooking and writing into a career.

So 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 created content for individuals, businesses and organisations including the Arabic International newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, Coorong Realty, Seeds of Affinity – Pathways for Women and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

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