Work with me

Would you like a tightly written science story for your publication? I write science news and feature articles for magazines, newspapers and niche publications including Australian Geographic and Nature. I explain concepts simply and I deliver copy on time.

My speciality is environment and sustainability.  I also write about other sciences including engineering and medical research. I am experienced with writing for general audiences as well as scientific audiences.

You can see examples of my work on my home page. For more examples have a look at my portfolio.

Please get in touch if you’d like a story for your publication or blog.
