I live locally in Ellenbrook and have now lived there for well over a decade. I’m a passionate and conscientious journalist and I enjoy using my colourful, lively style of writing to hopefully paint a verbal picture.

I very much aspire to the Christiane Amanpour style of journalism of being truthful not neutral.
