I’m an Australian author, journalist, and word-slinger.

I'm currently based in California's Bay Area, where I'm the Head of Content and Communications at MICRO.

I've appeared regularly as a moderator and panelist at venues and events including The Wheeler Centre, the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Women of Letters, the Melbourne Free University, the Future Writer’s Festival, the World Matters Festival, and the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali, Indonesia.

This website has collected bits and clips, books, articles and projects. And a link to a lot of broken glass. Thanks to the incredible Lily Mae Martin for the cover sketch, and Ken Miller for the photo.

MICRO's Smallest Mollusk Museum on display at the New Museum in NYC.


MICRO is what would have happened if Ray Eames had a love child with a Natural History Museum in New York City.

We're building a fleet of six-foot-tall science museums that are being installed in places like the Brooklyn Public Libraries, Rockefeller Center, and the NY Health+Hospitals System. At MICRO, our team of designers, engineers and storytellers is working to redesign the traditional museum model, and bring science to the people.

Find out more about MICRO over at Science Friday, The Washington Post, Observer Magazine and Smithsonian Magazine, and check out our museum website here.
