My first foray into digital content was over a decade ago, while freelancing for the BBC in the UK. There I undertook a variety of travel and lifestyle commissions in tandem with my work as a print journalist. From these beginnings, my reputation for creating high-quality digital content has led to work within some of the largest online brands in the world, including the likes of News Digital, Nine MSN, Yahoo and AOL.
While at News Corp I managed all verticals under the Daily Telegraph entertainment and lifestyle banner. Here I produced original content and re-packaged existing copy and video to fit into the Daily Telegraph brand. Content I created was utlised across the entire News network and my editorial direction increased audiences. I also successfully worked with both sales and content commercialisation teams, as well as developers and designers, on major site overhauls.
My expertise has also led to a variety of project work. I've edited digital guides for one of the one of the largest UK-based travel sites, World Travel Guides, where - as the Asia-Pacific editor - I oversaw the editing, fact-checking and content generation for several city and country guides. Soon after moving to Australia, I was commissioned by another UK and North America-based brand to generate Australian content. Circumnavigating the country over three months, I blogged continually, creating, editing and uploading copy, video and imagery remotely.
As you can see, my experience has spanned the digital pantheon: blogs, video, celebrity news, long-form features, hotel reviews, travel guides and opinion pieces. All combining my print journalist's sensibilities, with some serious digital know-how. Please see a few examples below:
