I currently work in culture and lifestyle at The Guardian, where I recently hosted the internet culture podcast Saved for Later. I’ve also contributed film and music criticism, profiles, and essays to The Saturday Paper, The Monthly, Sydney Review of Books, ABC Arts, Australian Book Review, Liminal Magazine, The Age, and many more. I host a weekly show on FBi Radio in Sydney, where I live. Formerly, I was the Culture Editor at Netflix Australia.
