With a background in science and communication I’ve naturally ‘fallen’ into science writing. Currently I am News Editor for ABC Science Online. I have written science features for Australian Associated Press (AAP), CSIRO Education and as a free-lancer.
Most of the articles I write are either astronomy or earth sciences, but I have written a number of medical and health articles. I have a regular column with Scientriffic magazine (Spaced Out) and The Helix magazine (Tech know). A lot of the content on this website is from those two columns.
Apart from work I enjoy travelling, astronomy (if I can ever work out how to drive my ETX-125 telescope) and geocaching.
I’ve been very fortunate to have travelled to many countries around the world, including; Cuba, Mexico, Croatia, Turkey, Vietnam, Taiwan, Fiji and Samoa. Every trip has opened my eyes to what exists outside our normal everyday world.
I live in Sydney and have a beautiful wife and gorgeous son who both remind me that the best times in life are spent with those you love.
