Civilization is a movement and not a condition, a voyage and not a harbour.

Voyage Media is the registered business name for my sole trader work outside of ACE Radio, which includes writing, journalism and online publishing.
I am currently busy with one particular project, Bang a Gong. Learn more about Bang a Gong HERE. Until 2021, I also published Gippsland Goodness (now in recess).
In 2023 I continue as a part-time journalist and newsreader at ACE Network radio stations TRFM and Gippsland’s Gold 1242, I contribute stories and interviews to the network’s rural program Country Today, and I am an announcer on Easy Music 3MP Melbourne and Easy Music 2UE Sydney.
Read more about my past and present work below.
This site showcases past media releases, articles and bios written by me as part of Voyage Media. Note that I am not currently active in this work due to my commitments with ACE Radio and Bang a Gong.
Media releases were distributed to media outlets in Gippsland and beyond.
Bios were written for local musicians and other public figures.
Articles were for publication on Gippsland Goodness, and for publication/distribution by organisations including TRFM, Gold 1242, Connect Well East Gippsland + Wellington and the Commitee for Mornington Peninsula.
Thanks for dropping in.
