Introduction

I am a graduate of the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Media, majoring in Communications and Journalism. My current contract with a PR company is finishing on June 28 and I am going overseas for three weeks on August 9. I am looking for work in between those two times to earn some extra money and experience. I am a very good writer and take particular interest in sports, politics and the arts. I have two years' experience presenting a community radio show focused primarily on sport. In this time I have also presented other shows of varying subject matter. I have written for websites and newspapers on a variety of topics. I am mainly looking for media related work. I am interested in acting or extra work, presenting, content production or writing. I am also interested in any public relations or communications work. For the last three months I have been employed in a short term contract at Avviso PR in Sydney where I worked on the public relations for Vivid Sydney among other clients. I look forward to hearing from you.
