The story so far
I’ve been with the ABC since my cadet year in 2009.

I spent the following two years at ABC North Queensland covering stories ranging from tourism and business to defence and even natural disasters like Cyclone Yasi.

I’m currently working as a broadcast journalist in ABC’s Brisbane office, focussing on the police and crime round.

I’ve been privileged to have the chance of working in national radio current affairs intermittently throughout my time with the ABC as well as three months working as a producer with ABC News24 in Sydney.

During my time at QUT I worked casually for several media organisations including Network Seven Brisbane as an assistant producer, as well as some newsreading for 96Five FM and Vision Radio Network.
