I’m a Queensland based media consultant with more than 15 years experience as a journalist, PR professional, MC and public speaker.
I graduated from Townsville’s James Cook University with a Bachelor of Journalism in 2003 and I have since enjoyed a career that’s included life on the road as a rural and regional televsion reporter for ABC News and rural current affairs program, ‘Landline’, through to work in the university, local government and not-for-profit sectors.
Since August 2018, I have been working as an independent media consultant and freelance journalist, following years as a Senior Account Director for a large agri-PR firm.
I’m a long-time professional MC and conference facilitor, and keynote speaker – specifically around the importance of authentic story telling, life on the road as a rural TV reporter and the importance of community engagement.
I have earned a reputation as a reliable, people focused communications professional, a trusted story teller and an advocate for rural Australia.
I have been MC’ing events and conferences for more than a decade, and have established myself as an in-demand, authentic keynote presenter on the importance of story telling.
