In 2000, I received my graduate diploma in Film and Television from the
Victorian College of the Arts. I emerged with a staggering debt and the certainty that when I grew up, I wanted to be a novelist. To support myself, I pursued a glittering career as a nightclub bouncer before segueing into professional fighting. I won the Victorian Heavyweight Kick-boxing title in 2007 and became a European Pro after that.
I retired after what I’d consider too many hits to the head and focused on writing. I am on the editorial staff for International Kickboxer Magazine, contribute to Blitz Martial Arts Magazine and wrote a column at Lifestyle Trainerson the subject of getting fit through martial arts for a while. I currently work as copywriter-in-chief at Iron Edge, purveyors of high-quality strength and conditioning equipment to the hard-core. I have written three fictional novels and am working on number 4 while running my own personal training business.
I am taking a deep breath and projecting myself into the icy ether of the internet in the hope of finding that elusive, yet much-discussed form of alien life – a readership.
