Many people want to be an astronaut when they grow up. Not me. I wanted to be a business journalist ever since my Dad used to bring home the Australian Financial Review when I was a kid. I couldn’t understand a word of it, but I would still try to decipher what was written. So it’s a privilege to now write for the AFR, as well as a huge number of other publications in Australia and overseas including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Company Director, In the Black and Forge. I edit Listed@ASX and used to publish a weekly small business column called The Big Idea which appeared in the Fairfax metropolitan mastheads.

I’m also lucky enough to write for many of Australia and the world’s biggest (and some of its smallest) businesses, regularly producing newsletter articles, blog posts, white papers and speeches for my corporate clients. I am also able to draw on a team of talented writers who work with me on larger projects.

I love sinking my teeth into business and finance topics and I especially like making esoteric financial information easily understandable for every reader, even if they know nothing about economics and markets. I would love to write for you, too. So please get in touch if you’re looking for a writer who can write to brief, to deadline and to budget.
