Sunil Badami

From being a trainee circus clown in England to a sous chef in a pub at the foot of a mountain on the Isle of Man, a financial planner in the CBD to managing a Kings Cross adult shop, Sunil Badami has had more strange and varied jobs than he’s had haircuts. His mother says he’s ‘an adequate speller.’

A Sydney-sider born and bred, and as proud of his Indian heritage as his Westie origins, Sunil’s written for publications including The Sydney Morning Herald, Good Weekend, Gourmet Traveller, The Australian, The Australian Literary Review, Art & Australia, Southerly, Seizure and Meanjin

Sunil’s work has been published in Australia and overseas, including in The UTS Writers’ Anthology, Goldfish: The Best Writing of the Last Five Years, Diamond Dog: The Best Australian Multicultural Writing, Growing Up Asian in Australia, Best Australian Stories and Best Australian Essays.
