I live in Melbourne, Australia, where I work as the website producer of Crikey.com.au, an Australian news and current affairs site. I’ve previously worked for Tourism Victoria, Southern Cross Austereo, APN and the ABC as a journalist, radio producer, cross-media reporter, online community manager and news reader.
I have a Bachelor of Journalism from the Queensland University of Technology. I’d definitely recommend the place. I also graduated with a minor in music production, which is much less impressive than graduating with with honours or distinction, but definitely more fun.
Professionally, I’m interested in regional Australia, wrangling news in a post-newspaper world and things that fall under the broad umbrellas of “tech” and “social issues”. Personally, I’m interested in live music, photography (film and digital) and reading.
