I am currently available to undertake freelance writing work including media content creation, technical and operational writing, scribing services, and anything else requiring well written and edited content.

On top of my creative writing skills, I also have nine years of experience working in the Australian Public Service as:

  • Senior Programme Officer

  • Branch and Governance Coordinator.

I have a Baseline Security clearance and primarily worked as an APS6 and EL1.

  • Development and implementation of project and programme communications including strategy and target plans, website content, social media content, media talking points and holding lines, operational training materials (quick reference guides, scripting, fact sheets etc), form template design, letter templates, correspondence, presentations, style guides and preferred wording, and key messaging to stakeholders;
