I’ve written on a broad range of topics, though most of my work essentially deals with the intersections between culture and health, tech, politics, and/or everyday life. I’ve also written for a wide range of publications based in Australia, the US, and the UK.

In 2014, I was a finalist for the Australian National Youth Week Award for Media, and I’ve also been commended by the Mental Health Association of New South Wales for my reporting work.

I am currently an opinion columnist for Fairfax Media where I write on a broad range of public issues (anything from commentating on federal politics to explaining why small dwellings provide a perfectly liveable environ). I also write features, longform pieces, and personal essays. I’m more or less curious about everything but I gravitate towards the intersections between culture, politics, and personal experience (either my own or experiences of others).
