News package I made while on work placement at WIN Ballarat about a fire in a local factory that was accidentally started by some young kids.
I wrote this article while interning at Crikey. It looks at the situation in Australia, the UK and the US in terms of how egg donors are compensated. In the UK standardised compensation of approximately $1,200 AUD has just been introduced and the waiting lists for eggs has dramatically reduced. In contrast, there is no legislated payment for Australian egg donors and couples must between two-six years for a donated egg.

An article I wrote for Crikey on the Australian Senate Inquiry into the involuntary sterilisation of disabled women and children. It was interesting to hear both sides of the debate, with both sides presenting a compelling case.

This is a radio current affairs story i made under the theme of “Sporting Melbourne” about Husky racing. I interviewed Andrew Gersbach, Darren Higgins, Anne McIntyre and Kim Offner about their racing experiences and the global push for Husky racing to be included in the Winter Olympics.
I presented and produced the news for Triple R with fellow journalism student Nadia Petrov. Top stories for the day were the Grocon police blockade at the Melbourne city work site, the Baillieu government granting permission for a bike bridge across the Yarra River in Abbotsford and National Child Protection Week. Take a listen!
I was recently one of the travel writers/sub-editors for City Journal. Have a read of my tips for travelling alone!
This is an audio slideshow i made on husky racing. The number of people participating in the sport has doubled in Australia in the past three years and interviewing mushers Darren Higgins and Andrew Gersbach made me want to take up the sport!
