So who's this David Allegretti fellow then

Hello, I've been expecting you. Welcome to my bio.

I don't know what to put here so I guess I'll give you some basics. I'm a freelance writer currently living in Melbourne, though I tend to move around a lot. 

I graduated from Melbourne's La Trobe University in December 2016 with a Bachelor of Journalism (Minor in Philosophy) and an Advanced Diploma of Languages (Italian).

So far, my work has appeared in VICE, The Japan Times, Noisey, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Brisbane Times, Global Hobo, Jetstar Magazine, Crixeo, Junkee, Munchies, AWOL, NAVITIME Travel, Red Duck Post, Tone Death, Acclaim Magazine, Beat Magazine, Thin White Line, Pilerats, Tinta Chida,  Rabelais, GO TOKYO, upstart magazine, Your Friend's House, Thought Catalog, Mail News Group, World Soccer Talk, and more.

I specialise in Travel, Culture, and Human Interest stories, but my mum reckons I'm pretty versatile and can write about pretty much anything.

When I'm not writing, I very much enjoy converting oxygen to carbon dioxide. You can send me banana bread pics at

Although I would prefer pictures of banana bread, do feel free to send story ideas, work offers, and conspiracy theories my way. My team will examine each email carefully and you will receive a personalised response. Written in blood. Not really. That would be weird.

Anyway, thanks for visiting my website, I hope your day is at least a 7/10.
