My Services


Writing for the media

I cover the latest scientific discoveries and compelling human stories for media outlets.

Writing for research organisations

I work with research organisations to share their stories with the world.

Media training for scientists

I help researchers become more confident working with the media and better prepared when a journalist calls.


I cut my writing teeth in the fast-paced world of newspaper journalism and scored my science communication credentials working for Scitech and The University of Western Australia.

I cover science and travel… and occasionally stray into other areas too.

I’ve been doing this freelance thing for seven years and I love it.
