I have been involved in climate policy and advocacy for 27 years, when I worked for Greenhouse Action Australia.

I have a B.Sc (Hons) degree from the University of Melbourne, graduating with first class honours, for which I was admitted to the Science Dean’s Honour List.

My honours thesis was in the history of evolutionary biology and I then became Curator of Science and Society for Museum Victoria, based at the Scienceworks science and technology museum.

I have provided public affairs strategy and communications services for clean energy company clients in Australia and internationally and have experience as a political advisor in the Federal, Victorian and  NSW Parliaments.

I have experience across sustainability issues and was communications team leader for Greenpeace Australia Pacific.

I was a board director and chair of the public affairs committee at Hepburn Wind, Australia’s first community-owned renewable energy company, a $13 million enterprise near Daylesford in Victoria.

Mainstream and specialist publications have published my analysis, including Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian Australia, the Age, the Canberra TimesRenewEconomy, EcoGenerationMeanjin (see below).
