I'm a writer and editor with more than 15 years' media experience, mostly specialising in health and food. My journalism has appeared in media outlets including The Saturday Paper, SBS, Good Food and Body+Soul. I've also created content for brands such as HCF, Officeworks and Weight Watchers and not-for-profits including Diabetes Australia and NPS MedicineWise.
I cut my teeth in online news, working at The Guardian website in London and The Sydney Morning Herald website in Sydney, before spending a decade in lifestyle magazines. I then moved into client publishing.
I now work from home, writing a mix of features and content such as profiles, case studies, fact sheets and SEO-optimised website copy for media companies, brands and not-for-profits. Whatever the work, I love finding and distilling the essential message and communicating complex information in a simple, engaging way. I also love researching new subjects and meeting and interviewing people from all walks of life to create inspiring case studies.
I have a wealth of experience in translating complex medical information and terminology and scientific studies into engaging content.
I also love writing about food. I love how just one simple dish or even ingredient can take you on a social, historical and cultural journey. I have years of recipe editing experience and also edit cookbooks.
I've been a magazine chief subeditor several times and have years of editing, research and publications management experience. I can do an entire rewrite and restructure, and manage a publishing project from start to finish, or simply tidy up and polish existing copy.
