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 five years and I love it.
