Tess drinking from a pineapple


Hi, I’m Tess!

Growing up in Sydney, Australia, I gravitated towards drama, although I also dabbled in music, art, photography, and writing. After school, I completed tertiary studies in theatre, before moving into freelancing as a WordPress consultant.

I now work as a Content Marketing Lead on the WordPress VIP team at Automattic.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I like cycling, hiking, and being anywhere near the water. You can find me writing comics about parenting, working as a voiceover actor, and spending time with my family.

My PhD thesis has been published as a book, which you can buy from Amazon. You can also read it here. I have also had several academic research papers published.
