Hi, my name is Chris Gillies and I’m a freelance writer and agricultural journalist based in Sydney. I write about farming, sustainability, technology and business with work published in Australian Farmers, Sprout Magazine and World Grain.

Growing up in South West Rocks, on the New South Wales mid north coast, I often shunned the beach for a book, or my horses – I guess this is where my love of writing began. Leaving school I moved into the world of grain trading via Orange Agricultural College where I completed a Bachelor of Rural Business Management.

Swapping the bush for the city in 2002, I started a career in communications and adding a Masters of Arts (Journalism) from Charles Sturt University to my qualifications in 2016.
