I'm a writer and communications consultant from Sydney. Hailing from the worlds of advertising and publishing, I work with businesses, brands and government agencies to deliver strategic thinking, editorial know-how and compelling writing. I also write the occasional essay and piece of criticism, and I run a bit. BA Sydney, M.Litt St Andrews.

Words matter. Good writing stops people in their tracks and makes them buy whatever it is you're selling1. At worst, it lets them know what you're on about. Bad writing? Not so much. Ideas can come from anywhere, but some are better than others. Curiosity, not contempt. People are smarter than some people think. Citizen journalism sounds about as dumb as citizen dentistry. Life's too short for dull.
