About Me

By day,

I'm a high school teacher.

After work,

I'm a father of four. This lot keep me pretty busy.

On weekends,

I'm an Army Cadet instructor.

And in my spare time...

I like to keep heavily involved in the creative community. I was a member of the Townsville Writers & Publishers Centre from 2015-2022 and was also the chairman of the organisation for five of those years. During this time I established Emerge, a writing group for secondary school-aged students, the Townsville Scriptwriters, working with writers of television, film and theatre scripts, as well as actors and those in the production industry.

I'm also a strong supporter of indie writers and developers - and I put my money where my mouth is. If you're in the mood for some warm fuzzy feelings, you can check out some good old fashioned philanthropy here.

Finally, I do occasionally take the odd writing contract, here and there. If you're interested, you can find my freelance writing services below. Please note that I do offer generous discounts for schools, indie, and not-for-profit organisations.

But like any good creative, I go out of my way to make time for my own projects!

​I recently finished my first novel, which I would describe as "survival fantasy." Unfortunately, it'll be in editing for a long while yet. In the meantime, the piece I am currently working on is a near-future sci-fi that examines the darker aspects of human nature.

Creative writing is my bread and butter, although I also write articles, reviews, and content pieces from time to time. I've even had a go at game design; I have an adventure board game which is currently in the production phase. These days, much of my time is spent coordinating events, facilitating writing groups, and conducting workshops.
