About Me

I'm a big believer in the power of stories and the words we choose to tell them. Prior to Blackbird, I spent over a decade working in communications for innovative brands and people. I led content strategy for communications firm Character + Distinction and edited Australian design publication est living.I’ve written features, advertisements, screenplays, blog posts, product descriptions, eDMs, taglines and all kinds of marketing collateral from website copy to car decals.

"There is just far more to the universe than we as individuals can understand right now." - Norman Doidge

What do you do at Blackbird?

Help Blackbird, our founders and their companies tell their stories.

What did you do before Blackbird?

Started out in film & television production before taking a turn into communications and never looking back. Most recently I edited a design magazine and helped founders tell their story through PR.

What do you believe that others do not?

Being interested is more important than being interesting. You don't need to have a Twitter account to work in VC.
