About me

I am originally from Murwillumbah in northern NSW, Australia. After completing year-long editorial assistant traineeship and a year-long cadetship with Australian Associated Press (AAP) in Sydney, I worked as an entertainment reporter and general reporter covering a broad range of stories. 

In 2007 I moved to London where I worked for most of the UK national newspapers as a freelancer which included doing shifts for The Guardian and Sunday Times plus consumer magazines, trade journals, and others. 

In 2012 I moved to Uganda but from there also covered stories in Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia, South Sudan, Nigeria and South Africa. 

I also spent nearly a year reporting from Bangladesh, Cambodia and Myanmar. 

I have a BA in English Literature and Modern History from the University of Sydney, and am currently completing a masters degree in human rights remotely part-time from Curtin University in Perth. 

I have dual Canadian citizenship and also the right to work in the UK. 

In my spare time I enjoy running and swimming.
