I am a freelance writer, editor, and linguist. I also work as a professional speechwriter and communications specialist (more details on LinkedIn) as well as being the co-founder and ongoing editor of a successful literary journal.

I was first published in a short story anthology when I was 17. At 25, I am now a published author of short stories, non-fiction, reviews, satire, theatre, and poetry, both in English and in other languages. I have written for anthologies, websites, and journals including Meanjin Quarterly, Overland, Not Very Quiet, Farrago Magazine, Demos, The Feminist Wire, New Territory, The Australian Multilingual Writing Project, Writer’s Edit, and Lip, among others. My writing is curious and analytical: my non-fiction spans political analysis, cultural commentary and arts criticism, while my creative writing regularly experiments with language(s), tone and style in exploring ideas. More comprehensive information on my writing can be found here.

My original research into biopics recently had me named 2018 Undergraduate Awards Global Winner for the awards’ Music, Film and Theatre category. I have been a featured artist at the National Young Writers’ Festival, the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Noted Festival, and the National Multicultural Festival, and my plays have been selected and performed on stage. 

I am also a co-founder of Cicerone Journal, an online journal based around the tenets of empathy and thoughtfulness that seeks to encourage an open curiosity about the world. The journal is a platform for exploratory, new and unusual writing. The other editors and I are especially committed to supporting marginalised voices and emerging writers with a story to tell, and seek to mentor writers and foster creative networks across Australia.
In the space of a year, Cicerone Journal has gone from non-existent to being awarded two competitive arts grants worth a total of over $13,000. We are currently organising literary events and workshops as well as publishing content online, collaborating on projects with fellow arts initiatives, and sourcing writing for an original print publication to be released in October 2019.
