To follow my passion for sharing Gippsland stories, its produce, farmers, people and returning to my initial interest of producing media, I started a Graduate Diploma in Journalism at RMIT University in 2020, completed in 2021. 

Below is the coursework I completed in 2020. In 2021 I returned to complete Audio Visual Journalism and take part in Channel 31 program Newsline.

Below is a list, with links, to course work complete as part of my folio of work for the Graduate Diploma in journalism.

Global News studies – Mistaken for a restaurant reviewer

Global News studies - New paper founder urges Gippsland readers to embrace online delivery

News reporting and writing – Third-generation butcher still making precisely the same bacon as in 1982

Journalism Innovation and technology – Snoopy the pet pig.

Data Journalism – Why do people move to South Gippsland

Audio Visual Journalism - as my Graduate Diploma of Journalism folio was getting too long, there is a new page just for my 2021 Audio Visual Journalism folio and Newsline!

Here is where you can find more of my folio

Over the summer of 2020-21, I completed an internship with Food and Fibre Gippsland, putting together a pilot podcast for the organisation. This podcast is yet to be published.
