Her experience across the media landscape has developed a strong understanding of the craft of storytelling. She is passionate about diverse stories in the Australian landscape and making audiences learn and laugh.

James Brennan 

James is an independent multimedia artist with a keen focus on video, music and radio. Tangentially speaking, science doesn’t fall under these categories, and believe me… he knows. But James believes that much like science, putting passionate and tangible effort into work within these spaces has undeniable results. 

James started his work in broadcast working the overnight editing shift for SBS and SBS Viceland in 2016, which his sleep pattern is arguably yet to recover from.

James currently hosts Midnights on FBi Radio, manages his own music career and is working as a video producer for digital. Please swipe right.
