I help brands build communities through strategic storytelling. I write copy, manage paid ads for a number of accounts and mobilise teams of creatives to execute engaging campaigns. I am available on a project-by-project basis anywhere in Australia.

I specialise in youth engagement and have spent three years writing and executing successful strategies for Federal Government Departments, Federal Politicians and SMEs. In 2016, during my work with Year13, I surveyed 7000 young Australians about their relationship to work, study, mental health and travel and wrote a research paper assessing the findings. I presented the paper at the annual Youth Engagement Summit, which saw considerable media coverage.

I currently sit on the Chairperson’s Committee for the Commonwealth Youth Council. I’m passionate about connecting Pacific Islander youth to relevant opportunities to enhance their capacities as young leaders.

I run The Gravity of Guilt, a digital platform for ex-Christians who are struggling with unsticking themselves from an indoctrinated past. I have grown a digital community of 120 members and host events to ensure our online community flourishes offline as well.
