I am studying Communication majoring in Media Production.

I left high school in year 10, I then worked full time till I was 21. When I was 20 when I completed Open Foundation at the University of Newcastle studying Art and Social Enquiry.

After completing Open Foundation, I attended Billy Blue College of Design, Sydney, where I finished my 1st bachelors degree in Applied Design (Communication) during this course I discovered my love for Film/TV/Sound Design, this lead me choosing my current degree and moving back to my home town Newcastle.

During my time studying Media Production I have joined the student run Media team Yak TV, and I have interned at NBN News Newcastle where I was able to get a greater understanding of what goes on behind the sense of our local news station from how the story’s are chosen, developed and produced on a daily basis

My future goal is to work in TV or work in films either in sound design or an editor.
