I’m a writer living in Geelong, Australia. I mostly write fiction that sits somewhere between realism, unrealism, science fiction, and satire. I don't have a name for it and struggle to describe it when asked at the parties I don't go to. I have an MFA from the University of British Columbia, and am currently writing a novel and exploring digital literature as part of a PhD at Deakin University in Geelong. I like reading things that surprise me. I live with a lovely Nova Scotian who, among other things, is very good at mocking my accent. I am competent in some sports but restrict myself mostly to walking. I like video games and interactive things but have a hard time admitting it. I like things that remind me of how small I am. I'm Australian but deeply suspicious about it.
I’ve published short fiction in Australian and North American literary journals such as The Dalhousie Review, The Sleepers Almanac, The Big Issue, Verandah and Page Seventeen.
