Hire Me

Australian Abroad, Freelance Writer, Formada de Capoeira, Surfer, and Yogi! Also passionate about good TV, ancient history and religions, and Wicca and the Occult. I’m a digital nomad currently based in Brazil.

Professional Background and Experience

I have a Honours degree from the University of Queensland (Australia) in History and Archaeology, and two Masters degrees (MPhil and MLitt) from the University of Oxford in Ancient History with a specialism in Roman religion and imperial cult. You can find my theses on

I later worked at the Oxford University Museums, first in the Partnership Office, helping to coordinate collaborate projects and activities between the four museums in the network, and later as the Digital Partnership Manager, to coordinate digital projects for the museums.

I started working as a freelance writer in 2018 when I decided to move to Brazil to pursue one of my other passions, Capoeira. This is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines combat, dance, music and cultural expression. I am now a Formada de Capoeira as part of the group NAIECO, for which I teach and perform. I am also the co-owner of the Caixa do Picole da Bahia, a cultural space in Salvador that promotes Capoeira locally and internationally.

I am fluent in my native English and Portuguese and do some translation work. For example, I did the English subtitles for the film Mestre Eziquiel: O Regional mais Angoleiro.

Over the last five years I have gained extensive freelance experience writing for the web (including as a ghostwriter). Below are some examples of my favourite projects!
