MBA (MGSM), BA Communications (Macquarie)
Chris, along with Anthony O’Brien launched Corpwrite in August 2008 as a boutique content marketing and public relations agency. Chris tragically passed away in March 2016 after a very long fight with cancer.
A senior freelance writer for Australia's top personal finance publication Money, Chris was a monthly contributor to the magazine since its establishment in July 1999. He also wrote for the Bulletin and a number of other Bauer Media publications.
Chris co-authored or editorially managed numerous books for Paul Clitheroe AM, chairman of the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board, including the best-selling Making Money (Viking Penguin), now in its 9th edition. Most recently, he editorially managed Paul’s Money, Marriage and Divorce, published by Penguin in January 2015.
From 1995 to co-founding Corpwrite in 2008, Chris ran his own successful public relations and freelance writing business in Sydney, providing services to a wide range of clients, from individuals and small businesses through to some of Australia's major listed companies.
Prior to that, Chris enjoyed an eclectic career, working in agriculture, real estate and film production including the blockbuster Phar Lap. Chris also worked in advertising and the travel industry, amongst other occupations, as well as spending a few highly enjoyable years roaming the world. A music tragic, Chris hosted a program for community radio station 2SER, with his interview of The Cure’s front man Robert Smith, a major highlight.
By the time of his death, Chris was no longer a jack of all trades, but an established and effective business communication specialist. His well-honed sense of joie de vivre and fair play are missed everyday by the Corpwrite team and the communications industry is much poorer for his passing.
