I am a writer, reader, artist, biochemist, and gamer, and I dream of vivid new worlds.
I grew up in a small country town on Yorta Yorta land in rural Victoria, and relocated to Melbourne, Wurundjeri land, for University. I’ve always been interested by too many different things, including arts, sciences, and all aspects of language and culture. I somehow narrowed myself down to a single career and now work in biochemistry research. I have a BSc (Biochemistry) with first class honours and a BA (Indonesian), and am continuing graduate study in writing.
However, I remain most passionate about fantasy. I have so many ideas screaming to be let out, and eventually I had to let them. Since starting writing, it’s taken over my life. You can find published samples of my writing here. I’m currently querying and writing more novels because querying is a cruel process but I’m starting to enjoy the pain.
Which is a little worrying.
My other focuses include Indonesian, martial arts, and painting, and you can view my artwork here.
I would like to pay my respects to the Traditional Owners of the land on which I was born and raised, the Yorta Yorta people, and to pay my respects to their Elders past, present, and future, as well as the Traditional Owners on the land where I currently reside, in the Kulin Nation.
