At its most powerful, audio can explain, enrich understanding and encourage empathy with others. As an independent production company, Inkslingers Media, I produce audio stories. My work extends to local heritage community projects in partnership with museums and archives, sponsored podcasts, oral histories, participatory arts & culture collaborations and radio programmes. With my experience in conversational journalism, managing projects, ethnographic research, building communities and operational workflow, we know how to take a concept, bring it to life and evaluate the impact.

Also, as a post-grad radio and audio researcher, I’m focused on community development, public engagement with local news and social gain. My honours thesis discussed contemporary issues facing volunteer community radio broadcasters and namely, how the community media sector stands amidst digital disruption.
