An editor (both as a Copyeditor and an Acquisitions Editor) and writer by profession, Geraldine has recently left the relative security of a full-time job to pursue a Master of Publishing and Communications at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia. She loves creating art and laughter, and walking her dogs. On her off days, you can find her either curled up with a book or painting. A walking collection of contradictions, her interests range from performing to competitive football.
Geraldine graduated with a BA (Hons) in English Literature (Second Class Upper), with a minor in Creative Writing. Over the years, she has written, directed, produced and performed in several plays. One of her experimental pieces, I’ve Got Nowhere, Everywhere To Go was staged by NTU’s Epiphany, as part of LitFest 2011. Adapting Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, she has directed Singapore Repertory Theatre’s Sean Lai in the production of this piece for LitFest 2012. As a theatre practitioner, she has also acted as Judy, one of the main characters in National Memory Project, a multilingual piece part of Hatch Theatrics’ debut double bill production. As a writer of poetry, short stories and plays, she has also contributed as a poet at the Proletariat Poetry Factory’s events. Geraldine draws and paints under the pseudonym ‘Geri T’, selling prints of her original works, as well as drawing commissioned works and writing pieces for her previous places of employment.
She is currently a freelance editor/writer and Creative Director/editor/graphic designer of The Eloquent Orifice. She resides in Melbourne with her fiancé and her neighbour’s cat, Bam, whom she insists is half hers now.
