I’m a freelance writer, editor, presenter and producer with one eye on exploring Australia and the other on examining humanity.

Not long ago, I was a senior writer for the Sydney Morning Herald. Before that, I was its Diary editor and, further back, its Life+Style editor. As well as reporting for the Herald, my features appeared in Fairfax Media’s NewsReview, Good Weekend, The (Sydney) Magazine, Sunday Life and The Age and my weekly restaurant review column, Good Food on Sunday, was published in the SunHerald.

I came to Sydney from New York, where I was a features editor and writer at MailOnline, which I joined after my time at the Evening Standard in London. In between, I wrote for the BBC, CNN, Independent, National Geographic Green, Australian Women’s Weekly, Faint, Australian Geographic, Mamamia, The National, the London Evening Standard, Ecologist, L’Ecologiste, Base Camp, London Sport, Skieur, FreeSki and the London Lite.

Many years before that, I was born in Sydney and grew up living, studying then working in Germany, Jordan, the UAE, Peru, England, Canada and America.
