About Me

I’ve been writing professionally, both freelance as well as a journalist and reviews editor for Eternity, Australia’s biggest Christian newspaper.

Having dabbled in programming for most of my life, in 2016, I took a sideways step into programming and development in Ruby on Rails and JavaScript. I work with Aphid, a software consultancy in Sydney.

In 2012, I co-wrote Kinds of Blue, an award-winning comics anthology about what depression is like, and how to help someone suffering from it.

I’m married to Mary, who is curly-haired and American, and we’re nominally responsible for two tiny humans. We live in Sydney’s resplendent inner-west.

I read more than fifty books a year (find out what I’m reading and what I recommend in my free newsletter), I am always listening to music, and my favourite superhero is Doctor Who.
