National Environmental Science Program's Resilient Landscape Hub

I'm a science communicator, scientist and artist. I combine these skills in my role as Communications Manager for the National Environmental Science Program's (NESP) Resilient Landscapes Hub. The hub supports 50 projects all around Australia: from bush tucker and fire research in Kakadu National Park to quoll research in the midlands of Tasmania.

I grew up on a sheep and cattle property outside of Goondiwindi, in southern Queensland. It gave me a love for the bush and for working outdoors. I especially enjoy reporting on field trips in remote places. I've climbed 80-metre trees in Borneo, spent 5 weeks on a ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean, and pulled snakes from pitfall traps in the Simpson Desert … all in the pursuit of a good story!

For the last 18 years, I've worked as a science communicator with researchers, NGOs, Indigenous ranger groups, schools, and government agencies. I've been lucky enough to work with CSIRO, Bush Heritage, Sea Country Solutions, The Nature Conservancy's Solomon Islands and PNG programs, and with the Torres Strait Indigenous Rangers.
