I make radio shows and magazines, I blog and occasionally code, and I'm working on a TV show - basically I love making media stories no matter what the media.

Canvas, my weekly creative culture show on Sydney's FBi Radio, features a cast of architects and artists, bloggers and software developers, writers, designers and dancers. I was a guest presenter on the ABC's pop up digital radio station at the Sydney Writers Festival, I'm a researcher on ABC TV's Catalyst program, and was a science communicator at CSIRO until recently (where a project I worked on won last year's Eureka Prize for Innovative Solutions to Climate Change). I'm a judge on the annual ARIA and SMAC awards, and a participant in events like the Sydney Writers Festival, Newcastle's This Is Not Art festival and the Sydney Festival.

I've been described as one of Australia's "digital media talent pool" (Nick Crocker, Native Digital/We Are Hunted). I edit Cyclic Defrost, the nationally distributed print/online magazine, and I've written for the websites of New Matilda and Mess + Noise. I was a music critic for, which the Guardian newspaper described at the time as the world's best online music magazine. I was an editor on in its early days and I've blogged at since 2004 - though I'm more likely to be blogging about my neighbourhood now at I’ve also written for Artlines, Ecos, Hot Press, Nylon, Oyster, Riot, Spinach7, The Canberra Times and The Sydney Morning Herald.

If anything ties these projects together, it’s a deep interest in creative scenes and communities, and what makes people make things – whether it’s in music, art or science – and I get a real kick out of coming up with ideas and working with teams of talented people to make them a reality.
