Walking, hiking, gardening, horse riding, bird watching, nature watching … mostly I like to spend time outside. I head outside to recharge. Also writing and reading, mostly about those things that I like to do outside. Join me as I explore my little corner of the world, which is on the south coast of Western Australia.

A bit more about me
I am interested in the places, both physical and ideological, where people and nature intersect, where our biological reality meets our modern selves. Regardless of how clever our technology becomes, we remain intricately caught in natural rhythms and cycles. I’m interested in what that means for us as individuals, for humanity as a whole, and for the planet we call home. So these are the things I write about. I have had a long career as a science writer, mostly as a freelancer, and have written about agriculture and environment for many publications, including Farming Ahead, Outback, and Horses and People.
My first book What’s for Dinner? - Our food, our choices, our planet will be published by Thames and Hudson Australia in June 2023.
I am based ion the south-coast of Western Australia and work from a home office surrounded by towering karri trees.
