I am an award-winning Australian journalist, producer and writer, currently based in Ottawa, Canada.
I’ve been working in the media for seven years in roles ranging from breaking news reporter to homepage editor. My interests include politics (especially electoral data and reform), travel, and the quirkier pasts of life.
I started my cadetship at The Armidale Express in February 2012, where I covered stories including the first appeal against the NSW government’s new consorting laws, allegations of a child sex abuse cover-up in the Catholic Diocese of Armidale, and the dramatic rise and fall of a former state independent MP and federal Nationals candidate. My work at the Express was recognised at the 2013 Northern NSW Journalism Awards, where I received the Tom Barrass Award for Regional Journalism and was a finalist for the PF Adams Young Journalist of the Year.
In June 2013 I left the Express and started work at The Bayside Bulletin and The Redland Times (merged into the Redland City Bulletin in July 2014), where I covered crime, court, emergency services and education news. My coverage of the North Stradbroke Island bushfires in January 2014 led to being named the Queensland Country Press Association’s Young Journalist of the Year.
In late 2015 I moved to the capital to work for The Canberra Times, mostly in the Sunday Canberra Times team. There I covered topics such as the public service, property development, electoral data, courts and breaking news.
I shifted over to the paper’s production desk in 2017, where I covered a range of tasks related to print and online editing and social media.
In 2019 I moved to Canada with my wife, and am looking for the next career opportunity. I’ll be writing on this site a lot more often now; you can find those articles under ‘Posts’. A portfolio of my professional work and a copy of my resume are also available here.
