I live in Melbourne, Australia, and am a qualified secondary teacher, writer and PhD candidate in International Relations at Deakin.

My PhD research focuses on moral panics and the political economy of scapegoating; the working title of my thesis is ‘The Oldest Trick in the Book.’ I have made a Pinterest to collect some of the data I find online.

I have written and, in 2016 self-published, a novel, The Booger Peril. A moral panic develops on Earth after we make first contact with an alien species (or as I like to call them, ‘space terrorists’). The more things change, the more they stay the same – people most of all.

I have a BA with Honours in history from La Trobe, and an MA in history from the University of Melbourne, for which I produced a thesis. You can download that as a PDF here.

You can find me on LinkedIn,  Academia.edu, Twitter and Soundcloud.
