About

Welcome! I’m an independent writer and editor based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been writing about the latest developments in science, engineering and medicine for more than 20 years.

I have a BA in Philosophy, and an MS in Atmospheric Science. I’m a card-carrying member of the US National Association of Science Writers.

Most recently (November 2017-April 2018), I worked in the Strategic Marketing and Communications office at Monash University, writing articles for their content platform, Lens. Before moving to Melbourne, I lived in Canada; from Vancouver I remotely translated and copyedited Technologist, a European science magazine geared for the general public. And before Canada, I was in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I worked for the Media and Communications Office at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), writing press releases, interviewing scientists, organizing press conferences, and writing articles for internal and external publications.

To get a taste of my recent writing, you can visit Gydle, a blog I launched in 2011 to experiment with new writing styles and subjects, or check out any of my Monash Lens articles.

In 2015 I translated a book by Swiss author Philippe Barraud. Beyond Contact: Exploring our search for extraterrestrial life is available on Amazon Kindle.

I’ve worked with all kinds of writers on all kinds of projects: fiction, non-fiction, essays, interviews, proposals, theses, and even poetry. This is what they have to say.

I love great writing. Let’s work together to make yours better.
