works published

This entire website and its content has been produced on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. I pay my respect to elders past, present and future. Sovereignty was never ceded. This is stolen land.

Read more about where I’ve been and who/where I come from here, if it interests you. I do asked about it a lot, and it’s wonderfully complicated to explain!

regular writing gigs

I regularly contribute to Froth, previously matching two of my loves – beer and good reading, but now only doing a monthly review on a Victorian beer, and occasionally write reviews for other places (see below). If you think I can do anything word-related for you in the below related disciplines (my areas of expertise/training/experience), then don’t hesitate to get in touch. If you’re interested in my creative work, then check out links to the following, where available.
