I was the founding editor of The Kings Tribune, a magazine and online publication that started in 2007 and closed (breaking my heart) in 2014. Since then I’ve been working as an independent journalist, speaker, consultant, and educator.

I have a Bachelor of Business from RMIT and a Master of Journalism from University of Melbourne.

In 2014 I started the FixedIt campaign, pushing for change in the way media reports on men’s violence against women. Five years later I published a book about everything I’d learned about men’s violence, women’s (mis)representation and the media. Fixed It was published by Penguin Random House in 2019. In 2022, FixedIt is not over, it will probably never be completely unnecessary, but it’s no longer the full time job it was in the beginning.

In 2020 I co-wrote a book about how COVID-19 would affect women and girls in Australia. The book, called Work. Love. Body. was commissioned by Future Women. Santilla Chingaipe wrote the Love section, Emily J Brooks wrote the Body section, and I wrote the Work section.

I planned to run for a Senate seat in the 2022 federal election, but the didn’t have enough time to get party registration and citizenship documents sorted before the election. I will get ’em next time!
