I’m a writer/editor/all-rounder/Queenslander from Australia. I’ve just wrapped up a four-year stint as a Senior Editor at MSN Australia, where I managed overnight operations and acted as Motoring vertical lead for MSN AU and NZ out of Microsoft’s Delhi Media Centre in India from Jan 2016-April 2018.
Freelancing from March 2012, I’ve been published by Inthemix, The Roar, The Guardian, The Big Issue, The Weekend Australian, The Music, Three Magazine, The Punch, ACCLAIM, McSweeney’s, What Tradies Want, NT News, AWOL, Sportsmate, Balance, Stereosonic and Red Bull.
From March to December 2012, I handled publicity duties for the Red Bull Music Academy’s Australian activities, while Outliving Lifestyle Products contracted me as catalogue editor and copywriter from May 2012 to March 2013.
I was the foundation editor of iPad-only youth culture/lifestyle title Three Magazine, named in the March 2012 top 20 of the iMonitor™ List of Best Magazine Apps for iPad. I’ve also edited 3D World and the Zebra dance music supplements of Time Off and Inpress, and contributed to Drum Media and Faster Louder.
I’ve written about Asylum Seekers in Lausanne, the Shocking Secrets of Suburban Sydney parks and YouTube Fetish Videos. I’ve covered international events such as the Rugby League World Cup, Indian Premier League, Red Bull Music Academy and Magnetic Fields Festival.
I’ve drummed out of time/played other people’s music at events like Big Day Out, Future Music Festival and Parklife. I’m occasionally the ‘drum’ component of live drum’n’bass duo Silent Shadow. I’ve produced house music as Kris-Ko and Skins, some of it actually quite good. Take a look at Discogs for my semi-complete list of credits.
I’ve worked on film and television productions like The Proposition, Nim’s Island and Big Brother.
I’m proficient in Wordpress and other CMS, Omniture, Chartbeat, Facebook Insights, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Ableton Live, Sound Forge, InDesign, InCopy, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and MS-Paint.
I’m organised, reliable and versatile. I’m cynical, sarcastic and frequently hilarious.
Drop me a line if you need some words written and/or copy edited.
Or just say hi, I’m easy.
