So last year I took a class where, as a group, we had to plan, shoot and produce a video profile of someone.
My group chose Damielou Shavelle, a sensational musician/youtuber and the leader of #TeamPurple.
Our video got featured on Magnify Melbourne and I’m super proud of my group and myself.

Last semester for one of our assignments my class had to write a feature profile on journalist and lecturer David Lowden.
On the day, Jason Irvine and myself had the pleasure of interviewing Lowden on a range of topics from his coverage of the London Olympics to family life.
The following is the piece I wrote based on the interview, ‘The Many Faces of David Lowden’
The Many Faces of David Lowden
Jack-of-all-trades and family man, David Lowden, has been a lot of things since the beginning of his career in 1989. After originally wanting to be an author Lowden began working in the journalism field whilst taking a gap year from unrelated university studies.
Lowden is currently a practicing sports journalist and is also a Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University’s Bundoora Campus. He has a Master of Communication with distinction and is a member of PRIA (The Public Relations Institute of Australia), MEAA (The Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance), NTEU (The National Tertiary Education Union) and JEA. He is currently completing his PhD on inclusivity and organisational culture at the university’s Centre for Sport and Social Impact.
