Welcome to Ellie’s electronic portfolio!
I have recently graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Journalism/Arts, and an Extended Major in Peace and Conflict Studies.
I have developed a broad set of skills across traditional and digital media platforms, including in writing, editing, layout design, copywriting, photography, production, digital marketing, social media, public relations strategies and presenting/reporting on television and radio.
So far I have had work experience at The Morning Bulletin in Rockhampton, The Courier Mail, The Sunday Mail, Brisbane News magazine, 4ZZZ radio in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast Daily, and The Urban List. I also enjoyed working as a PR/Marketing intern for an online makeup company at Red Republic .
My knowledge about journalism and communications was put to good use when I tutored journalism for a few years at The Women’s College, within the University of Queensland.
At the moment I am working as a Marketing Manager and Bar Supervisor at the Transit Tavern, where I am responsible for all Facebook advertising, Instagram post scheduling, as well as thinking up new and creative marketing and promotional strategies for our venue.
My dream is to be an essential part of a media organisation that significantly improves the lives of others.

In an assignment for Convergence in the Media at the University of Queensland, I envisaged my future in the field of journalism.
Here is a link to a blog I worked on for one of my subjects at university. I was asked to write a reflection on each lecture. I have also posted some assignments and general things that interest me. This blog is no longer updated: El’s Space.
