I’ve enjoyed a career spanning 30 years in media, marketing and communications working across newspapers, television and radio as well as two stints with the Australian Olympic Team as a senior media officer in Sydney 2000 and Athens, 2004, and the joy of coordinating three Write around the Murray Festivals. The 2010 festival was awarded the NSW Local Government Association Library & Information Services Award. http://bit.ly/ltaw3v.
