I am a writer, editor, media professional, conservationist and, to mix it up a little, a tall ship sailor. In mid-2014 I moved back to my home town of Fremantle, Western Australia, after five years writing, studying and working in Melbourne, Victoria. I now live in Canberra.
This blog began during my time in Melbourne and has evolved and changed over time according to my location, employment, immediate political concerns and the vagaries of life. My writing engages with issues and topics that are important to me, primarily feminism, Australian politics, the environment and connection to land, place and sea. Sometimes, this engagement is through literature; sometimes by responding to topics in the media; often, through reflection on elements of daily experience.
Some of my recent writing can be found on the Australian National Maritime Museum’s blog, where I wrote regularly during five voyages as crew on the replica ship HMB Endeavour. There is more information about my professional experience here.
