I am a highly experienced freelance journalist, content creator and former magazine editor with a track record spanning more than 25 years in publishing and communications. 

I have extensive experience producing both editorial and branded content for print and digital platforms.

As a professional storyteller, I am adept at applying consistent tone and messaging across editorial and branded content.

I am moved by nature, sustainability initiatives to preserve our beautiful planet, colour, great design in all its forms, history, vintage fashion and lifestyle, vivid photography, gifted artisans and learning about people from diverse cultures. I believe every person and place has a story worth telling.

I have attained a post-graduate Diploma in Journalism from the University of Technology, Sydney; and a Bachelor of Arts from Macquarie University.
