I'm a writer and reader based in Melbourne.

I've been published online and in print. I've performed my work, hosted panels and run workshops at national writers festivals, including at Emerging Writers' Festival, Brisbane Writers Festival and Melbourne Writers Festival. In 2015 I was longlisted for the Richell Prize for Emerging Writers.

I'm a co-founder of literary project Stilts, which was launched in 2011, and continues under new leadership today. I currently work for the Readings bookshop as the digital content coordinator and manager of the Readings Prizes. In 2016, I was nominated for the ABA Penguin Random House Australia Young Bookseller of the Year award.
