I’m a writer, editor and performer based in Melbourne, Australia.
I have a deep, lifelong passion for stories, books and grammar. I struggled to choose between English, music and drama in high school, and to this day I stubbornly cling to the dream of a career in all three.
I have a Master of Publishing and Communications (completed in 2015) and a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in English and Italian (completed in 2013). I wrote my Honours thesis on monstrous femininity in Nineteenth-Century Gothic literature, which was great fun, and I continue to write about words, grammar and a crime-solving dog named Inspector Gubbins.
I’m a classically trained singer (15 years and counting, currently training with Adam Wood), and I was awarded an Associate Diploma of Speech and Drama with Distinction from Trinity College London in 2007. In the same year I won the Young Dramatists’ Page to Stage Writing Competition for a short play called Scientific Notation, in which I misused the word ‘myriad’. The error haunts me to this day.
I’ve performed with choirs for most of my life. I sang with and arranged music for a women’s a cappella ensemble called The Candystripes from 2009 to 2012, and ran the group in 2011.
You can usually find me in a library, a cafe or a music room somewhere, unless I haven’t left the house that day, which happens more frequently that I really want to admit.
