I’m a Melbourne-based mum, writer, amateur photographer and Human Resources consultant.
I am available for freelance positions in the following areas:
- content writing/management roles in both web and print-based publications with a focus on parenting, photography and/or social commentary;
- social media management.
- Bub Hub (web)
- Mother and Baby Magazine (print)
Areas of particular interest to me (with associated blog posts for a sample of my writing) are:
- Raising Girls (Schoolyard Politics / Stories of Me: Brave)
- Parenting (It’s a School. Not McDonalds / The Great Taboo)
- Photography (Catchlights)
- Social media (Why Twitter is like “Survivor” / 10 Reasons why I have a love/hate affair with Twitter)
- Human Resources trends in Australia, with a particular interest in balancing work and motherhood (Working parents and the too-hard basket / Anatomy of a Redundancy)
- Aneurysms (Babies and the Broken Brain / Stories of Me: Love Story)
- Travel (Luminoso. It’s Italian for Bright)
My writing has a humorous, irreverent edge, but my style is flexible and can accommodate topics of a more “serious” nature. I am able to accompany my writing with relevant photos.
For freelance writing/social media: If you have a requirement for a social media consultant/manager, feature writer, columnist or content writer/manager, please contact me via my contact page.
For PR/brands: Whilst I am PR/brand friendly, I am very careful about the brands I align my blog with. I am passionate about supporting local/Australian-owned brands although will consider international brands if they are otherwise a match to Melbourne Mum. If you are a brand or agency interested in ambassadorships/sponsorships or affiliated links, please contact me for my media kit.
Disclosure Policy: Occasionally, I will write a post for an experience that I have received free tickets for or had expenses paid. These posts will be clearly marked as such at the top of applicable posts. I hold my readers in high esteem and my opinions are not, and never will be, for sale.
