What people are saying

My background

I’ve been working as a web content writer/editor and social media coordinator for 8 years. I’ve been lucky enough to work for great companies like ACMILa Trobe University and Monash University creating, re-working and maintaining their websites.

I’ve also worked as a Sub Editor for street press magazine Trouble, and have edited Maths textbooks for Hawker Brownlow Education.

I’ve worked as a web content writer and copywriter for a number of Melbourne not-for-profit organisations, including The Push and the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation.

Education

I have a Bachelor of Arts (Professional Writing & Editing), a Cert IV in Small Business Management, and I’ve completed a number of web-related short courses, including Writing for the Web and Web Accessibility Testing. To keep up with the ever-changing online environment, I am constantly researching, observing and testing the latest trends in the field.

Philosophy

I am dedicated to providing quality online and print communications services to businesses, organisations and individuals. I’m passionate about the arts, education, health and the greater good.

I believe in enabling my clients to be confident with maintaining their online presence, and enjoy nothing more than seeing a happy face at the end of a project.

I’d love to get together to work out what your communications needs are, so why not get in touch?
