About

Hello there, I’m Lesh.

I’m a Melbourne-based writer and poet.

My poetry has been published in the Australian Multilingual Writing Project and soon to be published in the Cordite Poetry Review (August 2019).

While I’ve worn a few different career hats, one thing has remained consistent throughout: harnessing words to process life.

Right now, I’m working part-time as a Digital Content Specialist for a fantastic company that provides wellness programs and services to workplaces.

Before that, I worked as an Assistant Editor and a Wellness Writer for an online magazine, and I founded and ran a blog called The Mindful Foodie, where I posted mostly vegetarian wholefood recipes and published a recipe and healthy-eating ebook. I have kept these recipes on this site, for some of them have fans.

I also have over 8 years’ experience working as a freelance Health and Medical Writer. Way before this, I practiced as a pharmacist and instructed aerobics in the years before Les Mills was a thing.

On more of the personal side, I’m a Piscean, a mama two two gorgeous fur babies and married to a spunky Sri Lankan. I was born in Fiji, but have called Melbourne home for more than 30 years.

Writing poems, reading, enjoying a coffee (almond milk magic!) and dark chocolate (70%+), soaking in a bath in cold Melbourne winters, and being in the company of whole-hearted people swells this introvert’s heart.

Thank you for visiting my little online abode. I hope whatever you discover here adds more deliciousness to your life.
