Journalist, writer, wanderer.
Informed, engaging writing on music, arts and culture by established journalist. Feature interviews a speciality. Books, broadcasting, lecturing, hosting… If you want the best, look no further.
Australian-born, London-based, I am the jazz critic, and a world music critic, for the London Evening Standard and write for major newspapers in the UK and Australia. I’m also a compere at WOMAD, a contributing editor of Songlines magazine, and a writer of books, press releases and programme notes. Sometimes I give lectures, and go on BBC Radio. Before all this I did a postgraduate degree in anthropology. I’m currently enrolled in a part-time Masters (Global Creative and Cultural Industries) at SOAS, University of London.
