About me & my work:

Magazines! Print media! Broadcast! I make words and print them and speak them and broadcast them and mash them.

I am co-editor at the much loved The Alpine Review, a gorgeous, Montreal-based annual-ish compendium of ideas that has quietly built up a strong following amongst influential thinkers around the globe. I am also executive editor for Totem, an agency ded­i­cated to pro­duc­ing world-class, mean­ing­ful and engag­ing con­tent for com­mer­cial clients, both across the usual platforms and those previously undiscovered.

I was a correspondent for Monocle, in Melbourne and Montréal (and still a little bit now in Toronto). I also write for others that have fig­ured out why they still need to exist in this dig­i­tal age, and who con­tinue to set stan­dards of excel­lence — for instance the good folks at Smith Journal and Modern Farmer. I was the edi­tor of the rather won­der­ful Australian inde­pen­dent mag­a­zine Dumbo Feather, and I’ve been guest edi­tor for various literary journals and other jams around the world.

My debut the­atre work, Prompter, was staged at Arts House in Melbourne in August 2013. I also have a long history of community projects, provocations, collaborations and agitations. I once looked after a supercomputer on the night shift.
