I am a writer and aspiring journalist based in Melbourne, Australia. My reporting beats of interest include legal affairs, media industry news, medical research and new developments in technology.
Being the kind of person who cannot stand being idle for too long a period of time, I fill in the spare moments from my Bachelor of Journalism degree at Monash University with writing gigs and internships, contributing to a number of publications and websites.
The main highlights of my career thus far include having worked as an accredited reporter during the Australian Open 2014 for the New York-based website Tennis Panorama News – which involved posing questions to the likes of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic – and experiencing the buzz of a newsroom while interning at Melbourne’s major metropolitan newspaper The Age.
In a nutshell: Italian food, ’90s rock, black boots, extensive sticky note reminders, over-analysing literary classics, creating my own form of shorthand, anything containing chocolate and, of course, writing.
My work has featured in Thomson Reuters Legal Insight, The Age, The Australian, The Conversation, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Canberra Times, The Courier, Crikey’s Laugh Track, Broadsheet Melbourne, Tennis Australia, Tennis Panorama News, Beat Magazine, Everguide, SYN Radio, 89.9 LightFM, Yass FM, Victoria Law Foundation’s Everyday-Law, The SportingJournal and Lot’s Wife. I also run a blog, InkedHistoryOfNow, under the pseudonym Garnett Hunter which acts as an outlet whereby I may publish pieces of creative writing and express my appreciation for literature and music.
