I have experience with a wide range of media including traditional print, online, social media, videos and podcasts.
I've written for tech publications covering new releases, emerging tech as well as theoretical and educational stories.
I've covered games and events across Australia, including triple A releases and specialised indie stories. I've also produced opinion pieces about the state of the industry and the growth of games as a medium.
