I'm a writer and musician who lives in Melbourne, Australia. 

I work as the engagement editor of Crikey, Australia's oldest and cheekiest independent news and current affairs website. I’ve previously worked for Tourism VictoriaSouthern Cross AustereoAPN and the ABC as a journalist, radio producer, multimedia reporter and community manager, but not all at once or in that order. 

I have a Bachelor of Journalism from the Queensland University of Technology. I’d definitely recommend the place. I also graduated with a minor in music production, which is less impressive than graduating with with honours or distinction, but more fun.

I am always up for a chat, particularly if you are polite and/or share my enthusiasm for border collies. Get in touch at sophie@sophiebenjamin.com.
