I am an Australian foreign service officer and former journalist interested in digital diplomacy, technology policy and social inclusion. As a diplomat in Jakarta, I used digital platforms to expand connections between Australians and Indonesians, and deepen one of Australia’s most important relationships. I have worked on government communications during humanitarian crises, war games, summits and major events in Myanmar, the Philippines, Turkey, the United States and Ukraine. I graduated from the University of Sydney with a degree in media and communications and worked as a journalist for seven years, focusing on legal affairs and social issues. Most recently, I was a ministerial speechwriter in Canberra.
