Born in Scotland and resident in Sydney, I’ve spent the last two decades hunting for music that defies convention and definition, turning out a slew of record labels, radio programs, zines, gigs, podcasts, blogs and more.

My work has been covered in articles by The Guardian, Time Out and The Brag, who called me “one of Australia’s most important champions of innovative music”.

Broadcasting. – I’ve worked as a broadcaster for the last fourteen years, presenting programs on Double J (ABC), Sydney’s FBi Radio and FBi Click, and UK station Resonance FM. My current show Fat Planet is broadcast nationally every Wednesday at 8pm on Double J. – Read More.

Curation. – My passion for innovative and experimental music has birthed a number of creative projects, ranging from the internationally renowned New Weird Australia initiative and my record label Provenance, to guest curator roles at a number of events and festivals. – Read More.

Publishing. – In addition to writing about music, I have also edited many titles and founded the award-winning digital publishing imprint Branches. – Read More.
