I offer consultation services primarily in relation to two areas: Indigenous Australia and chronic health conditions.
I identify as an Aboriginal Australian, and was raised at the base of Mount Beerwah, on Gubbi Gubbi land, where my cultural education was prioritised, thanks to community elders and involvement with nearby indigenous organisations. My personal experience with chronic health conditions has been supplemented with post-graduate research in the area, and my doctoral thesis on representing people with chronic health conditions in videogames is near submission.
My connection and experience with these areas has given me the skills, knowledge, and contacts to help people include characters or elements relating to these areas in their creative works in a way that is respectful, meaningful, and engaging. While my work with videogames makes these services most directly applicable to game developers, my background includes a range of creative formats—so I can also provide assistance to writers, artists, filmmakers, and people from other (creative) disciplines. These services include sensitivity reading; advice pertaining to representation, inclusion, and accessibility; and access to resources and additional expert contacts to help with the design and implementation of representation.
(More information about other areas in which I offer consultation services can be found at Queerly Represent Me, alongside details for other expert consultants to meet all your needs.)
