Words are my thing, whether they're stacked - short, sharp and crisp - in a bit of snappy copy, or strung out in a lovely, long form-style feature.

I was a journalist for 16 years, and added on a copy editor hat for half that time. There's a copywriter's fedora in my closet too, worn for print, online and social media.

My journalism work has been extensively in lifestyle journalism, writing across food culture, books and literature, social initiatives, travel, the arts and more; I've also worked at the newsdesk, covering everything from politics and Parliament to people and social issues.

Then I segued from lifestyle subjects to academic ones. Today, I work in the media and communications team of one of Australia's most exciting young universities. My areas of specialisation are sci-tech and health, but I continue to write across anything and everything I find interesting.
