I translate complex concepts and science into engaging stories. As a subject matter expert in science communication and the environment, I synthetise research, promote science programs, manage projects, and connect people, ideas and organisations for positive, lasting impact.
I travel to rural and remote areas to take photos, capture film, and write stories. I've been the dedicated 'reporter in the field' on scientific field trips to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Borneo, the Torres Strait, the Simpson Desert and Tasmania.
I run storytelling and social/media training for scientists and other technical professionals. This has resulted in these scientists now being the trusted, 'go-to expert' on their research area for local and national media.
I pitch compelling stories to journalists and media networks. One media release on AI and the protection of turtles by Indigenous rangers won a Mumbrella Award and led to stories seen by 6M+ people.
I lead multifaceted campaigns, such as CSIRO's five-month celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. Our content was viewed 4.1M times by 2.7M people, with 3400+ media stories.
I led the outreach on a five-week deep-sea expedition to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, on CSIRO's RV Investigator scienin 2022. I hosted live-streamed video crosses to 970 students from 28 schools around Australia: from 5 to 17 year olds, from Tasmania to the Torres Strait. It was brilliant. (Stories and feedback here.)
