I tell non-fiction stories and communicate ideas to audiences of every kind, in print, on the web, in person and on radio. I do both editorial and copywriting and specialise in making complicated subjects interesting and easy to understand.

Need someone to explain oil pricing or the Ukraine crisis in 450 words? I do that. I also build relationships that enable people who’ve just met me to open up, allowing me to uncover their stories and tell them at book length.

I’ve written 10 books so far, two of them popular histories, seven co-written or ghostwritten memoirs and a biography. A piece of mine was also included in The Best Australian Science Writing 2016. You’ll find rundowns on all my books here.

My magazine clients include Qantas Spirit of AustraliaCosmos and Reader’s Digest. I am a contributing editor for the Australian, New Zealand, South African, Malaysian, Singaporean and Philippine editions of the latter. Read some of my work – features, profiles, reviews, trivia quizzes, humour pieces, statistical columns and more – on my LinkedIn page here.

Corporate clients include Wenona, Leasing Information Services and Open Universities Australia.

I do structural edits and rewrites on manuscripts for publishers and for, select clients, mentor authors and provide media training.

My previous roles include curating for the web, publishing, broadcasting and serving as Communications Manager for a federal government authority.

I’ve delivered sold-out workshops, led community groups and even designed open-source playground equipment. Read more about my background here.
