Who am I?

I have worked in a professional capacity with: the Australian federal government (Canberra), magazine publishing companies (Sydney), environmental NGOs (Hanoi), and a host of freelance and pro bono communications projects both in Australia and overseas.

I am punctual, reliable and manage fast turnarounds. I won't take on your project if I can't do a fantastic job with it.

I worked for ten years as a graphic designer so I have an eye for detail. What that means for you is meticulous copy, and no wasted time and money at the printers.

I am a nice person. By which I mean, I am honest. I donít overcharge, there are no hidden costs and I am happy to discuss payment options upfront.
