I am a journalist with 20 years experience in newspapers and magazines both in Australia and the UK. Now working in communications, marketing and PR, I joined the Northern Beaches Advocate as I value the importance of local newspapers in both informing residents of what is going on in their community and keeping people and companies accountable for their actions and local impact.
I am a website Producer who has built some of Australia's most visited media websites, including as a founding staff member of ninemsn in the late 1990s. Northern Beaches Advocate is my response to the decrease in availability of local news services. I have an opinion, but I'll stick to the facts so you can make up your own mind about issues.
At 22, I worked with the legendary Henry Manney III, photographing every F1 race in Europe. After a career in tourism and IT, I started Community Photography to provide professional standard images for community and not-for-profits. Over ten years, one thousand shoots, and one hundred thousand images have been delivered to clients.
I am an award-winning journalist and author with more than two decades' experience, including at the Sydney Morning Herald and the BBC's Australian online news service. I produce "The Coast" for Radio Northern Beaches.
