I live in Melbourne, Australia, and am a qualified secondary teacher, writer and PhD candidate in International Relations at Deakin. My PhD research is focusing on moral panics and the political economic 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’) who are said to be coming to this planet to steal our jobs and destroy the peaceful and benign Earthly way of life which knows nothing of perpetual war. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I produce music involving an excitingly eclectic mix of hip hop beats, dub, dancehall and drum and bass under the moniker Ites One. You can hear my tunes on Soundcloud and download them free on Bandcamp.

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 also find me on LinkedIn,  Academia.edu, and Twitter.
