About Me

My Pretty City

I’ve lived in Brisbane, Australia most of my life with a wonderful interlude on Mount Tamborine during the 80s. My short story Tales from the Pine Tree Forest is about my primary school.

In 2011 I began a Bachelor of Creative Arts at The University of Queensland. I majored in Film & TV and Writing and graduated in 2013. I worked at Blockbuster for eight years so I just had to study film.

In 2014 I did my Honours year at UQ. I wrote my thesis on one of my favourite television series “Giving Voice to the Unmentionable: How Hannibal Lecter Uses Bodies in the Television Series Hannibal”. I have many favourite television series.

Academia is addictive so in 2015 I began studying writing online at Swinburne University. The best thing about studying online is that you don’t have to put on pants and go places. In 2017 I graduated with a Master of Arts (Writing) degree.

So here we are.

Most of the things I’ve popped on here are from my time at university–there are some academic essays from the right side of my brain and some short stories and scripts from the left side of my brain.

I hope you enjoy your time here and please, come again.

    Very exciting! The most important questions are, do I feel like starting with fiction or non-fiction, and which piece do I read first?

    I feel like I’m looking at a chocolate box, trying to decide which one to eat first. Or maybe a better analogy is, I feel like Hannibal, looking at my guests, deciding which one needs to be nibbled on first.
