Take a look at my work here.
From writing character profiles, to photographing and interviewing award winning artists, to spreading the word on things happening in Newcastle, writing for NM was never boring! You can find my work (2016-2019) published in their past zines or online here.
the AU review
Interning with the AU review, I wrote music news, conducted and transcribed interviews, and worked on a feature article on DIY event culture over the course of the internship. You'll find all of that and more here.
I realised my love for feature writing, and found a home on ToneDeaf for my piece on crediting music photographers.
If you want to know why it's such an important thing to do, you can read all about it here.
Here is where my interview with Australian pop icon Tina Arena is published, among other pieces, although the Tina Arena piece is the most important in my eyes.
You can take a look at it here.
While I mainly captured events for Amnplify, I did an interview with KLP, the host of Triple J's House Party segment. It was after the release of her EP Ember.
