This is not a full resume but includes links to recorded examples of my work to give you a better idea of how I approach interviewing. I hope you enjoy what you hear.
RARE AIR PODCAST
July 2015 saw the first Rare Air podcast released. My aim was to produce a long form interview profiling people with interesting but lesser-known stories. Stories of humanity, endeavour and passion. It is always my aim as an interviewer to hold space for a story to be told but not direct the telling too much.
In 2015 I was approached by US radio station WNYC to produce a package about WA based bio artists Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr for Peabody Award winning show Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen.
A MILE IN MY SHOES
PERTH INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL 2016 / EMPATHY MUSEUM
Arriving at an oversized shoebox in an inner city park, you receive a pair of shoes, an MP3 player and headset. Putting the shoes on, you wander through the gardens for ten minutes listening to the story of their owner.
I was senior producer on this project for PIAF 2016. I produced sixteen of thirty-one stories, including the mother of a transgender man, Sikh taxi driver and sex worker. Only some are available online:

The Daily Review
I’ve been a volunteer presenter at RTRFM 92.1 since 2000, arriving back in Perth from Sydney, having done a radio training course at 2RRR and a stack of hours on tiny narrowcast station Bondi FM.
I spent several years presenting talks show Morning Magazine once a week as well as coordinating the women in music program Drastic on Plastic. At the moment I present Drastic about once every two months and drop in to record an interview ( more recently, feminist Clementine Ford and singer Neneh Cherry) once in a while.
WritingWA is the peak body for writing and related activities in WA.
Since early 2015 I’ve hosted Cover to Cover, a monthly interview with the author of WritingWa’s Book of the Month. This interview is recorded at Westlink TV and distributed via the satellite network around regional Western Australia and beyond. My guests have included eminent historian, the late Geoffrey Bolton, bestselling author Natasha Lester and first time novelist Sam Carmody.
