I am an SEO copywriter, editor and web designer based in Canberra


I provide smart copywriting and design to businesses and organisations to grow their online brands. 

I specialise in government and the not-for-profit sector. Also food.

Plus, I work with a range of organisations in other industries.

I'm a smart, friendly and professional SEO copywriter and web designer for businesses in Canberra and across Australia.

I have a great love of writing, editing and creating communications that speak to audiences and convert.  

I enjoy helping others and teach digital marketing through my digital marketing blog for small businesses, and my newsletter.

Until recently, I lived in the beautiful country of Laos where I indulged my love of food on my popular blog, Eat Drink Laos and wrote food and travel articles for lots of publications

I'm particularly good at: 

  • Writing clear, succinct content on a range of subjects from food to mining to social media

  • Turning complex, technical writing into friendly, engaging content

  • Editing articles, blog posts and online content to shape a cohesive story

  • Using targeted SEO strategy to help businesses rank higher on Google searches

  • Designing professional, beautiful websites that get loads of compliments

How I work

Do you want… greater online visibility, well-written content, engaging socials, higher SEO ranking and ultimately, more clients bursting through the door. 

I can help your business grow.

I have a clear workflow with lots of custom systems and processes to make it super easy for us to work together. 

Plus, I'm a nice person. Like, so nice that I used to feed all the stray Lao cats around my house and take them to the vet (I miss them!) 

Better yet, just ask my clients, I have a 95% referral rate.

We needed to engage a copywriter who could hit the ground running and produce high-quality content for our new website really quickly. Lilani did that in a responsive, thoughtful and professional way. We’re delighted with our new copy; it’s fresh, relatable and tells our story beautifully.

I have all kinds of communications experience

20 years' worth, in fact (yes, I'm that old).

Specifically, here are my street creds:

  • Degree in Media Communications

  • Masters in Sustainability

  • Graphic design skills in magazine production and advertising

  • Web design skills in Wordpress, Squarespace and HTML

  • SEO skills in research, analysis and copywriting

  • Australian federal government communications experience in a central agency

  • Environmental consultancy communications in Vietnam

  • Agriculture and climate change communications at a central Vietnamese government ministry

  • Writing, web design and social media work in grassroots not-for-profits in Vietnam and Laos

  • Australian embassy experience in Laos

  • Freelance feature writing for publications across Australia, Asia and the US

  • Regularly blogging for 10 years in 4 countries


All that diversity means I have oodles of energy, experience and enthusiasm for any project. 

My writing clients span food, agriculture, mining, IT, travel, business, government and digital marketing. 

And I've designed websites for a range of small businesses in industries such as construction, real estate, health, retail and communications. 

I came to Lilani with a brief to design a website that would present me professionally online. She absolutely filled this brief, asking the right questions to make sure my site fit my needs and to make the site user friendly. I’d definitely recommend Lilani’s services: she made the whole process easy, and the outcome was exactly what I wanted.

Congratulations on reading to the bottom of the page! You’re my kind of person.

Here’s 3 things about me to prove I’m not a robot (in case you were wondering):

  • I started a crowdfunding campaign to vaccinate and spay stray cats in my neighbourhood in Laos. We got 40 of the critters, bless their furry paws.

  • I make awesomely colourful and creative birthday cakes 

  • I watched Halley's Comet from Arthur C Clarke's house as a kid
