I am a trained journalist who has worked as a writer, sub-editor, editor and production editor for magazines, newspapers, online and book publishers in Australia and Britain for more than 30 years.

I am currently Chief Sub-Editor at The Australian, the national broadsheet daily, across News, Features, Business, Sport and Online.

I worked at Fairfax Media as an editor for 12 years in various roles, on the launch production team of the highly successful Sydney Morning Herald daily Lifestyle sections (e.g. Good Living, Domain, The Guide) and finally as Group Managing Editor of its book publishing arm.

As well as editing for some years the established SMH and Age Good Food Guide titles, I edited up to 10 commercial titles a year, working with independent and major publishing houses

I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Adobe Indesign and QuarkXpress for Mac and PC.
