I have twenty years' experience as a trade publisher and editor, holding senior roles in large multinationals such as HarperCollins and Pan Macmillan, as well as small and medium-sized houses including Brio Books and Hardie Grant.
As a company director, I've helped craft lists, steer businesses through turbulent times and mentor staff – while simultaneously managing contracts, royalties, digitisation, production and distribution.
As an editor, I've worked with a wide range of authors, from multi-award-winning laureates to emerging talents, scientists to sportspeople, pop stars to politicians; in the process assisting them to produce their best work.
In recent years, in addition to my corporate roles, I've taught postgraduate students about editing and publishing at the University of Sydney.
I have a reputation for excellence and sensitivity; a versatile, principled advocate for a progressive publishing industry. I love nothing more than helping to create critical and commercial success stories; books that enrich, entertain – and sell.
