Professional Background:

Have been a professional journalist for more than 50 years, having worked in most parts of the world - including Fleet Street London), Europe, San Francisco, Singapore and in all states of Australia.
I've covered sport, business, agribusiness, health and politics, among many topics. I am currently operating as an independent PR consultant, specializing in sport (boxing), health and community services, and business.
Incidentally, I spent a year as Copywriter for one of Western Australia's largest and most successful advertising agencies, working on its John Deere account, then the biggest single advertising account in Western Australia. I won the prestigious Caxton Award for my work on that account.
