November, 1996 – Present (almost 23 years)

I have more than 35 years' experience in the publishing and communications industries. Most of my working life has been as a freelancer but I was also Manager of Indigenous publishing house Magabala Books, Broome, Western Australia (1990–95) and Senior Editor with Focus Publishing in Sydney (2002–04).
