Certified influencer….

Surprised to find out today that I was name checked in The Age’s Green Guide list of the most influential people in the Australian TV industry.

It was cool to be mentioned as one of The Digital Disruptors along with my friends and peers, Kate McLennan, Kate McCartney, (The Katering Show)  Nick Boshier and Christiaan Van Vuuren (Bondi Hipsters).

To be honest I don’t think we’re as influential as The Age’s Green Guide makes out…. But it’s cool to be on the list with friends who I admire for their creativity and work ethic. It’s an endless hustle and what unifies all of us is the desire to make something great for the digital audience, and the digital audience is us.


“Meanwhile content creators make the shows that tickle their fancy, as Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick Boshier did with Bondi Hipsters, ditto serial cage-rattler and freelance presenter Dan Ilic, Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan in the cooking-show parody The Katering Show and multi-platform pioneer Nathan Mayfield at Hoodlum. “
