I was born in Sydney, Australia. I've been an actor, director, musician (new wave and classical) and scientist. Mostly though, I've been a writer. I've written agricultural, medical and scientific articles and ebooks as a public relations professional, freelance writer and ghostwriter.

I've also published numerous short stories, have completed my first novel and written three screenplays - one long, two short. One screenplay, "The Reconciled", made the quarter finals of Screencraft's Short Screenplay Competition 2016 and a short story titled "Daphne's Dance" made the quarter finals of Screencraft's Short Story Competition 2016.

I'm a science geek with a penchant for biology and ethology. Photography is how I unwind when I'm not writing. I adore animals and have a huge gooey spot for cats, horses and birds. Although an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy TV and film, I also appreciate serious drama - as long as it is in other people's lives.
