About me

Shayne-LinkedInI am a writer and former lecturer in journalism with a penchant for sub-editing and proofreading.

I like to generate editorial story ideas and make deadlines with beautiful, error-free copy that has been researched and fact-checked.

During a career that has spanned more than 30 years, I have written for lifestyle, health and specialist publications.

Since 2011, I have covered the real estate market for local and metropolitan newspapers.

In this role, I write news stories about the state of the Sydney property market and feature stories about people going through the process of selling the family home.

One of the highlights and privileges of my job is that I get to talk to everyday people about, what can be, an emotional and gut-wrenching experience. I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone with a boring story around one of life’s biggest and often most stressful decisions.

As the world of media evolves, so do I.

I have social media experience at a professional level as a casual blogger for a boutique hotel marketing business. I am proficient at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

My experience also extends to broadcast journalism and public relations, and an 11-year stint as a lecturer in print journalism at a private tertiary college.

I also fancy myself as an author though I’ve yet to score a goal in that field! You can read more about my fiction writing journey by keeping an eye my blog. I also hope to pop some of my writing onto the website. Stay tuned for that big event.
