My formal educational background is in academic philosophy, though I've completed training in graphic design, makeup artistry and cake decorating, and have worked as a copywriter, educator, digital marketer and academic for most of my career.
Given academic precarity, I've also been lucky to enjoy work across hospitality and similar people-centred industries. I actively value my position outside of the academy as a working class philosopher 'in the world'.
I enjoy honing new skills and am always working on a new craft. Examples of my photography are strewn across this website, and below you'll find links to more of my labour-of-love creative projects.
Growing disillusioned with the narrowing barriers of academic philosophy, I founded the australasian posthumanities in 2020 as a digital thinking space against colonial capitalism. I run talks with thinkers and creatives, turning them into podcasts on Spotify. We also run a reading group in the posthumanities which you can join here.
Recent pieces include noetics of the strip club for The Suburban Review, half-gallon quarter-acre pavlova pretext, shortlisted in Landfall magazine's 2020 essay competition, and two poems in Sweet Mammalian. I'm currently writing on gender, colonialism, sexuality, mythology, and the posthumanities, while submitting work to journals and working on my first book.
