rd-copyI’m a writer, radio and TV broadcaster, podcast maker, voice-over artist, editor, journalist, media skills and public speaking trainer.
So many labels. I prefer to say I tell stories for a living. I help people and organisations tell their stories. I have 30 years media experience, in radio, TV, print, online and social media.
I can write and edit for you, devise your media and communications strategy, get you ready for interviews and public speaking events.
Want to start a podcast? I can show you how. I can help you make your internal and external communications more effective.
And if times get tough, I have a particular specialty in media and communications during emergencies and disaster recovery.
Put my skills and experience to work for you.
I’m based in Sydney but available for assignments across Australia & around the Pacific region.


This blog began as a chronicle of my journeys in northern Australia for the ABC.The stories of far north Queensland and the Kimberley are all still here. Click the left hand photo for Kimberley stories, and the right hand photo for FNQ yarns. Happy reading!

    Looking forward to more pics and audio from your Cape trip. We did the same trip 4 months ago. Also took so many photos that I would be hard pressed to convince my family to sit through the slide show no matter how good a feed I provided.

      Thank you Janice: More pics and audio coming over next week or so. But like you, we’ve got so much stuff it might take a while to sift through and process. It’s THE most photogenic place I’ve ever been and I can’t wait to head back to the Cape. Cheers Rd

    Good stuff Rd, love reading about where you’ve been exploring in the great far north. Heading kind of that way in May. My daughter is telling all the time how much she’s enjoying the top end. Cheers!

      Thanks Theresa. I never wanted to be an online reporter! But I’m getting the hang of this

    Loved it RIchard. I went up to Wallaby Creek back in September (through the Daintree) with my son Jordy & a mob of friends. It’s fabulous country. Thanks for sharing your pics.

      Hi Penny lovely to hear from you. Wish I’d known you were up this way. Would have got u on the radio for a yarn. I’ve got loads of pics and audio to post from Cape York so there’ll be a bit more each day for a while yet. Regards to Roger
