I’m Erin (she/they). I’m a Glasgow-born, Melbourne-raised journalist and digital content creative. I’m currently SYN Media’s Content Coordinator – I work across a range of digital platforms to empower young people to make content that matters to them.
I graduated from Collarts’ inaugural Entertainment Journalism course with an award in academic and journalistic excellence. I am now undertaking a Bachelor in Communications (Media) at RMIT University.
I’m a passionate community media maker – I have been a contributor, presenter and producer for radio and podcast content at SYN, Triple R 102.7FM and JOY 94.9FM. I was also the 2019 SYN Community Coordinator for All The Best.
Before I became the Content Coordinator at SYN, I was an Educational Programs Trainer and Producer with SYN Media Learning. This involved facilitating media training for school and community groups in Melbourne and regional Victoria. I’ve also worked with the Community Media Training Organisation as a Pathways Trainer. I enjoy training and mentoring others in multimedia content production and storytelling.
Pro wrestling is my first love. In 2018, I established a digital archive and zine to share the stories of women and queer people in the Australian and New Zealand scene, at Bronco Busters.
I am a proud member of the management team at Melbourne-based professional wrestling promotion, Deathmatch Downunder. As the Head of Community Engagement, I primarily develop and implement community engagement strategy and tactics, with the goal of creating safe and inclusive professional wrestling events and online fan spaces. I also produce and manage Deathmatch Downunder’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and online content. Occasionally, I might step between the ropes and say a quick “hello” to our punters.
I’ve made lots of wrestling content, including this mobile doco for the BBC’s The Social. No matter where I am in the world, you can always find me at your local wrestling show, heckling your favourite wrestler.
Audio storytelling is my bread and butter. I’ve produced a handful of stories for Australian narrative radio program and podcast All The Best, including this one about my family name, and this feature story about my experience with endometriosis. Listen to more here.
Sound As Ever was a podcast from the Australian Music Vault, highlighting issues in the contemporary Australian music industry. I co-produced Season 1 Episode 3 about Australian “punk” music, and Episode 4 about mental health and community support in the music industry.
See the full Sound As Ever collection here.

I’m also a freelance culture writer and editor. I cover entertainment and arts (music, film, pro wrestling), travel, lifestyle, health and culture. Here’s some grabs of work I’ve done for various publications, including Junkee Media, The Brag, and more. I also self-publish a thing or two on Medium.
