I’m a freelance journalist in Melbourne, Australia. I write about environmental, social and community issues. I am often inspired by the people I write about, so I hope you will be too.
For a sample of my longer articles, see this story about the death of a young man in Melbourne's west, published in Overland Journal, or this story about homelessness, in the Big Issue. Or this essay on the human side of climate change, published in Meanjin.
I've been writing a sporadic blog, called Mike and the Bush Mechanics. It was about learning practical skills. Now it's just about whatever I feel like – most often, that means it's about hitchhiking.
