I write feature articles, take photos, help organisations tell their stories and run The Ideas Arcade. I like working on and writing about projects and stories I believe in.


I'm a freelance writer, copywriter and communications consultant. I also dabble in photography and design. I'm the founder and chief ideasmith at The Ideas Arcade and used to work in public policy, CSR and investment.


Words are my first love and my core trade. From feature articles to creative copywriting to research reports & white papers, if you need something wordy I can almost certainly help.
