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


I have undertaken website content projects for several 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, arts festivals, contemporary art and design, performance art, graphic novels, internet culture, narrative-driven videogames and experimental music.

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