I write to capture and express life in all its glory, to spark a change in thinking. I love my boys and chooks for their cheekiness; love to swim, hit the boxing studio and practice hot yoga.

I'm currently undertaking a PhD research to write about a community that once lived for more than 80 years in the 1900s on Melbourne’s first Sewerage Farm, now Melbourne Water’s Western Treatment Plant. More information can be found at https://www.facebook.com/MetropolitanSewerageFarm

I've had several short stories published to date, my latest being 'The Teacher' in These winter months: The Late Orphan Project Anthology. The book is about the intricate and universal workings of family - regrets, learning, problem solving, daily life, and most definitely, love. It can be found at https://www.createspace.com/6021628

I've been short-listed in the Ada Cambridge Writing Prize, won the inaugural Wyndham Rotary Arts Small Business Award and completed a Masters of Communication with a thesis on boys and reading and what it is they like to read.

Away from creative writing, I'm also a corporate writer and consultant in social research and stakeholder relations where barriers to engagement, participation and communication exist.
