I’ve got extensive television experience, having appeared in a number of documentaries, including the award-winning Arranging Love, and regularly appeared on SBS and ABC TV’s popular prime time programs The Drum and The Mix.


I’m an experienced TV producer, presenter and interviewer, having produced and presented ABC News’s India Now! program, producing or presenting stories on  the dark history of colourism, what the Raj really did to India, sari stories, how one of Indian cuisine’s most essential – and divisive – ingredients isn’t actually grown in India and more, with my stories among the show’s most viewed. I also provided essential culturally relevant and sensitivity guidance and editorial advice.

If you’d like an engaging, informed, eloquent guest for your next show or a culturally-sensitive producer and diverse presenter who can help you showcase new and interesting stories, please get in touch with my agent Jane Novak at Jane Novak Literary Agency.

Talking about Being Black and Chicken n’ Chips with Matt Okine
The Mix ABC TV

As part of the 2020 Byron Writers Festival Digital Schools Sessions, I interviewed award-winning comedian, acclaimed writer and actor, musician and former Triple J brekkie host Matt Okine about his funny, moving and sometimes gross debut novel, Being Black and Chicken ‘n Chips, based on the loss of his mum when he was 12… as well covering the ongoing debate about chicken salt vs normal salt on your chicken n’ chips. Clips were also excerpted for The Mix arts program on ABC TV, further increasing the Festival’s audience and reach.
