I’m a third year journalism student at La Trobe University here in Melbourne, Victoria.
My current goal is to work somewhere rural as a reporter to get the proverbial foot in the door and really develop my skills. My journalistic interests lie along the lines of investigative journalism and community reporting/current affairs reporting. My longer term goals include moving into podcasting and documentary making, in similar genres.
I’m also an ex-Sea Shepherd crew member, which is where I first developed my appreciation of video-journalism. I took what opportunity I could to sit in and assist the film crews that accompanied us on voyages. I suppose yarns like these are the advantage of being a mature-age student.
I’m also planning on putting myself through coding school in the future to up skill my web skill set.
I would like a job someday (please?) so feel free to have a browse and get an idea of my current experience, writing and broadcast skills, and areas of interest.
