In May of 2017, I was asked to fill in as the digital producer for Gold 104.3’s breakfast show in Melbourne, Jo & Lehmo.
I was responsible for creating original show content in written and video form, as well as cultivating all online news & entertainment articles on Gold 104.3’s Facebook page.
Here is an example of a video I produced:

While I was working with ARN Melbourne, I was also asked to produce this announcement video for KIIS 101.1’s Chapel Street $100k Life Upgrade campaign.
On several occasions throughout 2016 and 2017, I worked as the digital producer for The KIIS Network’s National nights show, The Thinkergirls – hosted by Stacey June and Kristie Mercer.
During that time, I was responsible for creating content to reflect the on-air show in video or article form.
Here is an example of a video I edited. I had planned to record the entire segment, but the exchange at the start of the break was funny enough to stand on it’s own. Stace & Kristie were happy that I chose to reflect an unplanned, anecdotal moment that highlighted their natural chemistry.
As well as producing videos for The Thinkergirls’ own Facebook page, I also utilised the audience on KIIS 1065’s page.
Here are a couple of examples articles I wrote:
For over 1 year, I worked as a producer, editor and presenter for youth media property, Amplify.
During that time, I produced and edited web content including interviews, text-driven news videos, Podcasts and articles.
Here’s some examples of interviews I conducted and edited:
I also created original videos for Amplify’s YouTube channel. Here are a couple of my favs:
Prior to commencing my role as a producer, I presented the #AmplifyNOW gossip segments. Here’s a behind-the-scenes video I made, along with a sample of a segment i’ve presented:
In response to a statistic that 80% of videos on Facebook are consumed without audio, I began creating text-driven videos, rather than presenting on-camera. See here:
During my time at Amplify, I utilised the audio production skills that I attained through my radio studies at Sydney TAFE to develop and launch the Amplify Podcast from scratch. Over a total of 40 episodes, we spoke to various social media influencers that appealed to Amplify’s young demographic & explored a wide range of issues – such as sexuality and gender. I was the producer, editor and host.
Here is the special edition Podcast I produced on the topic of mental health:
The highest rating episode of the Amplify Podcast to date is my interview with Aussie YouTuber and model, Rahnee Bransby:
I also regularly contributed articles to Amplify’s website. Click here to read a piece I wrote, titled Why Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Is Not ‘Cute’ Or ‘Quirky’.
In the wake of my viral video success, I decided to launch a YouTube Channel as a platform to keep making video content. However, my best performing videos by far have lived on my Facebook Page; some reaching in excess of 2 million views. See below for examples of videos I have created.
