Comment: Jacobson Communications, "A way with words", Sydney, Australia. Since resigning as Associate Editor of Australian 4WD Monthly (see below), I have established my own business specialising in freelance journalism, media relations, text editing and event management. I have completed several assignments for my former employer, including editing a 180-page New 4WD Buyer's Guide. This included compiling the newslist and page-by-page 'visual', writing all of the copy, selecting all of the photographs, and liaising closely with the production staff.
I have used my technical writing skills to edit academic papers on a range of subjects, and provided media relations advice to clients from diverse industries (eg. legal, financial planning, personal coaching, aftermarket motoring accessories) wishing to enhance their media profiles.
