As a breaking news reporter for the global press, I've covered everything from the Iraq War to the mysterious disappearance of MH370, whilst reporting for Reuters, Bloomberg, Dow Jones, Australian Associated Press and The Wall Street Journal.
Within the corporate sector and government, I've written and edited everything from board papers to annual reports; white papers to landing pages; stock exchange filings to content marketing and customer journeys, and almost everything in between.
Creatively, I've had the privilege of spending time interviewing interesting people with wicked tales and written about everything from wine to house design; sustainable seafood to travel guides; sailing the world for a living to what makes political figures tick.
