About me

Aimee writes cultural criticism and creative non-fiction. Her words appear on and in The Big Issue, Sydney Morning Herald, Daily Life, VICE, Little White Lies and more. In 2015, she was a Writer in Residence at the SA Writers Centre. The following year, she was chosen for the prestigious Critics Campus at Melbourne International Film Festival. Embedded in Adelaide’s arts landscape, Aimee has worked for the SA Writers Centre, Adelaide Film Festival, Mercury Cinema, The Media Resource Centre, Adelaide Festival of Arts, Adelaide Festival of Ideas and the Australian International Documentary Conference. Personally, Aimee values gender equality, sexual diversity, intersectionality and mental health. Dancing on stage with Bruce Springsteen didn't cure her anxiety, but it sure did help. Don't believe her? She's got pictures to prove it.
