My Story

The abridged version


A writer with qualifications in arts, law, public administration and journalism. Previously worked in public policy and business management. All this despite daily distractions from three children.


Writes profiles, features, blog posts, obituaries, annual reports, menus and notes to the teacher. Can be funny, smart, thoughtful, analytical, concise and sympathetic. Doesn't usually do dull but can give it a crack if required. Visit the portfolio and blog.


Is constantly communicating. See for yourself at FacebookTwitter and Instagram.


Lives in the suburbs of Brisbane, Australia, occasionally escaping to the farm at Mt Alford to pick lemons. Sometimes travels even further, mostly to Asia.
