1. Travel Writer / Journalist

From Melbourne to the Middle East, Antarctica to Albania, I’ve covered destinations on and off the beaten track. On horseback or on foot, by yacht or chopper – whatever it takes to get there. Click here to take a look at my most recent work. Are you ready to tell your story?

2. Author & Editor

From editing travel guidebooks and interior design magazines, story books and local newspapers, I’ve tweaked a phrase or two. Past projects include an update to Fodors Australian series and the luxury outback travel book by RM Williams, Australia In Style. My current baby is Together Apart: life in lockdown.

3. Copywriter & Sub-editor

Click for website copy that’s tight and terrific, with polished prose and great grammar. Whatever your bent, I can twist to suit: with over 20 years’ experience writing and sub-editing copy, I’ve focused on finance for online news, kicked goals for glossy interior design magazines and written travel, travel, travel – with food, art, adventure, wellness and humanity mixed in.

THE NOTEBOOK

From swathes of scenery to secretive cafes: discovering the new, the exotic and the overlooked.

Midwinter in Lapland, Finland

  • Before the long polar night settles across Oulanka National Park, the fleet sun rises just a few hours a day, burnishing the snow with a rosy cast.

  • Rug up to enjoy a true white Christmas experience cross-country skiing, snowball fights and a Finnish sauna.

  • Join a team of Siberian huskies as they bay and run through the snowy Lappish landscapes.

NEW BOOK: TOGETHER APART: LIFE IN LOCKDOWN

When COVID-19 hit Melbourne harder than a runaway tram, our lives changed – literally overnight. Together Apart gives a rare glimpse into life in lockdown, beautifully capturing the isolation, frustration, hope, humour and human need for togetherness that quickly became part of our daily lives.
What started as a conversation over the back fence to break the solitude of lockdown has grown into a friendship and a partnership between me and my next-door neighbour, portrait photographer Jude van Daalen.
Photographed, written and printed in Melbourne, Together Apart is our black-and-white coffee table book featuring 60 portraits of people in our neighbourhood.
To get a hold of your copy, visit our book’s website.
If you’re from the media, please get in touch for extracts, press releases or images. Jude and I are also available for interview.
