Freelance Science Writer & Editor

Freelance Science Writer, Perth Australia 

I’m a freelance science writer and editor who specializes in ecology, conservation and the environment

I write independently about science, but I also write with and for scientists and scientific organisations.

As a writer, I’m interested in stories that explore how people are connected to species and landscape, and how good science can help communities make decisions that keep landscapes, and their connection with them, healthy and strong.

As a lapsed ecologist with a deep understanding of the science, I can also write and edit a scientific manuscript or research report for you, or help you communicate your science to a broader audience in a way that is both engaging and accurate.

I’ve always been fascinated by the complexity and beauty of the natural world and our place within it. This led me to a PhD in plant ecophysiology and then a career in ecological research, as well as a couple of stints in national park management.

My work has taken me to the mulga lands, brigalow belt and rainforests of Queensland, the monsoon vine forests of the Northern Territory, the eucalypt woodlands of south-west Western Australia and, most recently, the Pilbara.  You can see my career history and a list of my academic publications and invited presentations here.

After a decade and half as a research ecologist (and a great many days on my hands and knees in the dirt somewhere) I finally admitted that I was far more interested in crafting elegant metaphors than designing elegant experiments. From 2011–2016, I worked with the (then) Department of Parks and Wildlife as a science communicator and editor.

I'm based in Perth, Western Australia, where I live not far from the ocean.
