It’s been quite a while since i’ve updated my page… the reason? I’ve been working on this online documentary called Aftermath, tracking the recovery of communities across Australia following natural disasters. We’ve just launched our site, please take a look - the timeline feature is particularly cool.
It has been an exhausting and emotional ride putting this project together - but that’s nothing compared to what some of the project contributors have experienced over the past year or more, as they try to pick up the pieces following floods, fires & cyclones.

It’s been a massive 12 months for everyone at ABC Open.
We’ve just reached our 1st birthday and to celebrate we’ve thrown together a collection of stories and audience contributions from some of the many projects we’ve run across the country.
Take a look!
For the last 6 months I have been settling into my new role as ABC Multiplatform Editor for QLD. A big part of my role is ABC Open, an awesome community engagement initiative to enable people in the community to tell their stories.
Over the next 12 months we will have 45 Open Producers across regional Australia, working with their communities to create some unique Australian content. We already have 18 Open Producers on the ground, and the stories from our first project One on One: Change is great.
Take a look at this story from Maggie Whish who worked with Gold Coast ABC Open Producer Solua Middleton…..inspiring stuff.
