About Me


I’m a freelance writer based in Canberra. I approach my work with radical curiosity, always looking for fascinating stories incorporating strong analysis and reflection. I’m interested in stories and people that/who present the unexpected and make us see the world a little differently. I’m also interested in the intersections of culture, tech, medicine, politics, and personal experiences.

My nonfiction book about missing persons and those left behind, The Missing Among Us, will be published by NewSouth in early 2021.

I’m a traveller, an amateur photographer, and a brunch-eater. I have completed a doctoral degree at the University of Wollongong, looking into the narratives surrounding missing persons. You can find more detail about my work on this website.
