Current Biography

I am currently a candidate for the Bachelor of Civil Law at the University of Oxford, where I am studying as a Sir Robert Menzies Scholar, thanks to the generosity and support of the Menzies Foundation.

Before commencing the BCL, I was a solicitor in Herbert Smith Freehills' Sydney office, where my experience spanned both the contentious and non-contentious financial services regulatory practices.

Prior to commencing at Herbert Smith Freehills, I graduated from UNSW in 2012 with First Class Honours in both History and Law. I received the University Medal in History and graduated second overall in Law. In 2013-2014 I was an Associate to her Honour Justice Annabelle Bennett in the Federal Court of Australia.
