I'm a Fairfax Media contributor and former co-editor of Overland, Australia's longest-running journal of progressive culture. I have a PhD in cultural studies and my current book, Tinkering, is published by Monash.

My features appear in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Conversation, The Australian, The Saturday Paper, The Courier-Mail, Art Monthly, Crikey.com, New Matilda and Good Weekend.

My essays appear in journals including Griffith Review, Meanjin, Eyeline, Eureka Street, the Law Institute Journal and Overland. I've worked in advocacy roles for non-profit bodies. I've edited art publications and writers' magazines.

Sustainable life — cultural and environmental — is my primary focus. I teach communications, politics and sociology at Swinburne Online.
