I am an award winning journalist with more than two decades of experience in reporting for newspapers, radio, television and online.

Over the years I have worked for several major news organisations and covered a whole range of news stories, features, documentaries and exclusives in both Australia and the UK.

I’m passionate about journalism and the impact good journalism can have on people’s lives.

Journalism is the only profession I know where people can seek help and expect to pay nothing for the help they receive.

Long may that remain true.

I am also passionate about science and technology and combine both interests as a Science and Technology Editor for The Conversation website.

I attempt to use my journalistic skills to help academics explain their work to a wider audience.

I am also one of the brains behind the Ultimate Guide website, a developing free resource for Australian journalists, and I work part-time for one of Australia’s leading journalism universities.
