I started working as a journalist at APNS in 1975 and completed a four-year cadetship in journalism and press photography.
In the mid 80s I worked on high technology trade press before starting my own full-service above and below the line marketing and public relations consultancy that for a decade serviced some of the biggest names in the high technology market in Australia.
At the same time I continued my journalism career, writing on topics where there was no conflict with any of the PR accounts my company was handling.
These included: engineering, construction, commodities, infrastructure, oil & gas, tourism, healthcare, transportation, human rights, developing nations’ issues, business, investigative, and general freelancing.
I have spent considerable time working in Africa and Asia and have held the position of bureau chief, editor, news editor, CoS, copy editor, and chief copy editor.
In the early 90s I established and ran a news and photo bureau in Indonesia for an international news and photo agency.
In 1995 I was a Walkley Award finalist for my photographic coverage of the Ebola outbreak in Zaire for The Australian.
Significant events I have covered over the years include: the 1990 election riots in Zaire; the 1994 Rwandan genocide; the 1995 Ebola outbreak in Zaire; the 1999 independence referendum in East Timor; the 2004 Asian Tsunami.
I have produced style guides for use by journalists and editors. and in the past was active on the journalists association freelance committee. I write my own text, shoot my own stills, and also shoot and edit video.
I have experience at content creation, development and management, SEO and keyword implementation, as well as in the implementation of social networking marketing (SNM) strategies designed to increase website traffic.
