Sports Media, 2021

I’m a sports media student at the University of Canberra with first-hand experience in the field of journalism. My work experience includes writing weekly articles that surround Canberra United for the Football Sack, worked as an intern for ABC Canberra Grandstand on Saturday’s from 11am-12pm and wrote pieces for NowUC.

Throughout of these experiences, I have taken part in writing match reports, weekly stories, interviews and post match conferences, live tweeting sporting events, helping produce and edit content to go on air and conducting on-air interviews.

I currently work at the university bar on campus known as The Well and have had 10 years of experience working in hospitality.

Personal interests include a wide variety of sports, music and outdoor activities. I also believe myself to be an outgoing character that can get along with everybody around me.
