Nine News Producer
What’s your link to Townsville?
I lived and studied in Townsville while I completed my Bachelor of Multimedia Journalism at JCU. I was able to forge lifelong friendships and I often look back on my Townsville days with my uni and non-uni friends. There were more laughs shared than tears shed during those days.
Where are you now?
I’m living in Brisbane where I work as a producer for the Nine News 6pm bulletin. My work involves organising people for on-camera interviews, working with camera operators to get the right vision for the story, scripting and sitting down with editors to perfect the package before it goes to air.
What’s your next project?
I’ve been weighing up my options between filming and producing my own independent film, volunteering, and freelancing on the weekends with photography or graphic design.
What’s happening with your personal life?
I’ve just celebrated one year with my partner who is moving to Brisbane to be with me. We’ll be living together in the coming months and that’s super exciting.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success?
The opportunities that I jumped on in Townsville landed me my first job with NewsCorp, which lead me to my job with Channel 9. All the internships, freelancing and extra work that I was able to take on in Townsville gave me the essential skills that I’ve used to get ahead in my career.
Do you still come ‘home’ to Townsville to visit?
Not as much as I’d like but I’m hoping to visit this year or early in 2018.
