My Portfolio | Networks | Work Experience


I am actively seeking work in education and the media in Iceland, Vietnam, Thailand, South Africa, Myanmar, the United States, basically anywhere on the Earth. I am interested in travel writing, blogging, photography and video making. I graduated from one of Australia's premier journalism schools in 1994 with a degree in Communications (Print Journalism). I subsequently gained employment at the Cumberland Newspaper Group, working as a junior reporter at a variety of local newspaper offices in Sydney, New South Wales. I was actively engaged in planning newspaper content, researching and writing news stories, interviewing officials, attending public meetings, and liasing with advertising staff and the general public.

I have nine years of teaching English experience in Japan, and I hope to relocate to Vietnam soon. Over the years in Japan I have taught literally hundreds of students, of all ages, from babies to the very old (one of my current students is an 83-year-old man.) I often receive compliments for my clear pronounciation during lessons.
