I’m a writer and critic in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia.
The movie of my first feature screenplay, EXIT, premiered at Montreal’s Fantasia Festival in 2011.
I’m a PhD student at the University of Melbourne, currently completing an interdisciplinary thesis on superhero stories called X-Ray Vision. I received a Masters in Creative Writing back 2003 for Zero Zero Zero – a novella about how disappointed we all were when the world didn’t end on New Year’s Eve 1999.
I’ve been a film critic for Time Out Melbourne and Triple J Magazine. I was the comic book columnist for the literary site Bookslut, too. My essay ‘Fake Politics for the Real America’ won the 2009 Australian Film Critics Association Award for ‘Writing on Non-Australian Film’.
