I’m a multi-platform journalist, originally from Australia, now living in New Delhi and reporting across South Asia: in print, radio, video and online. I also dabble in commentary and consulting. I chiefly work for Monocle magazine and its rather popular online radio station, Monocle24, however I also contribute to a range of other outlets, including the ABC, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, The National, The Caravan and others. I report on a staggeringly wide range of topics: from music to defence, from society to architecture, from foreign policy to sport. Recent stories include India’s nascent ska music scene and a look at the growing relationship between India and Japan.
I’ve interviewed the prime minister of Bhutan Tshering Tobgay, India’s former chief economic advisor Kaushik Basu, London Olympic medal-winning boxer Mary Kom, former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto, and several LTTE leaders throughout the course of my career.
Before moving to India in 2009, I spent many years as a television presenter, journalist and producer with Australia’s two government broadcasters, the ABC and SBS.
