I am a writer, editor, and web content specialist based in Melbourne, Australia.


I have undertaken several website content projects for a number of organisations, and my writing has been published extensively by the literary/arts magazine Australian Book Review, where I was Deputy Editor (online/arts).


My arts writing focuses on comic, dark or transgressive topics. My areas of expertise are film, television comedy, history and mythology, arts festivals, contemporary design, performance art, graphic novels, internet culture, narrative-driven videogames and experimental music.

I currently work at ACMI (more widely known as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image). I coordinate and edit content for the website (information and programming) and commission and write topical and program-related articles for the Stories & Ideas section.
