I discovered recently that my first name means farmer or 'tiller of the earth'. Of course it does. I spend my days gardening words, places, stories and ideas.
My passion is to communicate the immense importance of the natural world through seductive, celebratory and thought-provoking storytelling, both written and visual.
My platform for inspiring change is The Planthunter online magazine – an entirely unique, occasionally irreverent and always thoughtful website celebrating the innumerable connections between people and plants. Since its inception in 2013 it’s grown rapidly into a highly regarded publication both within Australia and abroad, attracting a wide audience of plant, design, culture and garden hunters, young and old. The Planthunter is responsible for many a black thumb turned green.
In addition to my role as the editor and creative director of The Planthunter, I work with select clients to help them tell their story and make big creative ideas happen. I’m a columnist for The Design Files and am often asked to speak at events/workshops about the benefits, beauty and importance of connecting with plants and nature.

I've got qualifications in journalism, horticulture and landscape design and a love of big ideas, seductive storytelling and sharp design.
