As a singer, poet, writer, editor and lover of storytelling, I have been entranced by the power and passion of language my whole life. How it is that these marks and scratches, placed upon a variety of mediums, can hold the history of human experience, with detail and meaning, across vast spans of time, is deeply fascinating to me.
Twenty years of writing experience, a BA in psychology and philosophy and seven years researching how we humans make and break the connections between each other are the tools that I bring to each and every project I undertake.
I am the founder and event co-ordinator for the mental health and suicide prevention Breakfast, Expo and Comedy Gala Funny in the Head - an all day event of awareness raising, de-stigmatising and laughter focused on mental health and suicide prevention. My focus is on reframing our perception of suicide and mental health problems in a way that enables us to recognise them as social issues, not individual ones, and as issues that we can individually become empowered to do something about.
From my office nestled in the rainforest of Northern New South Wales, Australia, I provide writing, editorial and proofreading services for websites, newspaper columnists, bloggers and one of Australia's best-selling authors. With my background in music and psychology, writing, editing and proofreading is about much more than grammar. The written word has a bigger job than ever trying to put us in touch with all that we lose sense and sight of in the modern world.
