About

I’m an audio producer and oral historian with a passion for exploring the world through stories, and soaking up the magic of the human voice.

Sound rich audio stories that transport ears and hearts, drop us deep into someone else’s reality are what I love to make.

My written and audio work has been published by ABC Radio National, The Saturday Paper, The Monthly podcast, Deutsche Welle, and Overland Journal.

What I’m working on

A four-part podcast series, co-hosted by refugee advocate Mozhgan Moarefizadeh will examine the impacts of Australia’s border policies in Indonesia. The project is supported by a Walkley Foundation grant for freelance journalism, and will be released later this year. 

Closer to home, a series of audio diaries is consuming me! An Audiocraft – Big hART collaboration, this project hears from teenage girls in three unique Australian areas, from Roebourne in the far Northwest, to rural Tassie, and Frankson, on the outskirts of Melbourne.

My background 

With nearly a decade’s experience in oral history, in-depth interviews are my strength. I’ve interviewed for the National Library of Australia collection, and worked on an eclectic range of community history projects. These interviews have explored everything from the intricacies of breeding poultry (Royal Melbourne Show oral history), to dykes making their way in the bush (Daylesford Stories, Culture Victoria), families estranged by war (Whitehorse Council WWI Centenary).

In 2018, I had the privilege of recording oral histories with Aboriginal elders across New South Wales, through a project run by the state’s Native Title service provider, NTSCORP.

In Jakarta, from 2016-2017, I worked on the regional radio current affairs program, Asia Calling. We partnered with journalists across Asia to produce unique, sound rich reports from local perspectives. 

Before all that, my love of radio was born at Melbourne’s radical community radio station, 3CR. I produced and presented national current affairs programs, Women on the Line and The Radioactive Show, and trained new broadcasters. 

What inspires me

Amplifying voices on the margins and speaking truth to power is what inspires me.

My work aims to challenge structural injustices by listening deeply to those voices who know it best.
