Well hello! I’m a journalist, an author, a copywriter and a mother, and this is my space for documenting and discovering beautiful things.

I record the things in life that give me joy: my family, good food, getting out and about in Melbourne, travel, craft, and snail-mail projects. And I share beautiful things that other people create: art and photography, interior design, music, film, guerrilla art and random acts of kindness.

My story

In 2008 I moved from Sydney, Australia, to New York City to find adventure. When I got there, I also found love. So now I’m back in Australia, living in Melbourne with a man who makes me laugh every day, our two beautiful and exhausting babies, a dog with international stamps on his passport, and the world’s fattest rescue cat.

My writing

My debut novella Airmail was published in April 2011; I’m the author of non-fiction books Talk Without Being Interrupted and Seventeen Summers; and my poetry was included in the Australian Poetry Encouragement Award anthology in 2002. Right now I’m working on a novel about wine, and the research is rather enjoyable.

I’m the former Editor of Nett magazine and an international magazine that I’m not allowed to name here but you can ask me about it privately if you’re interested in my portfolio. Once upon a time I worked in radio, and broadcast to more than 80 stations each day as a senior journalist and commodity analyst. When pressed, I can still do the newsreader voice.

Nowadays I freelance for print and online magazines. I’m also a copywriter and a communications consultant, which means I spend a lot of time developing strategies and writing and editing online and print copy for various corporate and not-for-profit clients.

If you want to hire me, here are my contact details. If you’d like to hear more from me, here’s how to subscribe to this blog. I’ll even send you some pretty mail, if you so desire.

Now it’s over to you. Tell me about you, friend.
