Hello! Welcome to my website. Here you'll find updates on my journalism, cultural discoveries, travels and other movements. I am a proud Scozzie, born in Edinburgh, now living in amazing Australia.
I spent the first decade of my adult life in England, initially in Manchester, where I read History of Art, fell in love with MCFC and spent many happy hours on The Hacienda's dancefloor. After long stays in Clapham and Brixton, my last London hood was Balham - "Gateway to the South" - in leafy SW12.
Now employed by BuzzFeed as the news and entertainment website's Australia Editor, I have worked as a journalist since 1998, with my last stint in the UK at The Times of London.
I am blessed to have a vocation that rewards my natural, insatiable curiosity. My other interests include nature, photography, travel, culture, rare books, fine wine and Jack Russell terriers.
I am lucky enough to have travelled to more than 50 countries on six continents. These adventures have made me who I am. I guess I'll feel complete when I get to Antarctica!
