Andrew McColm

I'm a television and radio tragic. Way back in the 80s I was lucky enough to land a job with Channel 7 making 'Neighbours', a soap which lasted just one year on the network before moving to Channel 10 where it's still going today. A bit like me.

Since then, my television career has many chapters. I've worked for the Seven, Nine and Ten networks, on shows like Sunday, Burke's Backyard, MTV, AFL, Huey's Kitchen and I was the editor for Australia's first lifestyle program 'Healthy Wealthy and Wise' with Ronnie Burns and Jackie McDonald.

I also spent some time at AAV in Melbourne working on long and short-form content from television commercials and music videos to television programs and documentaries.

The highlight of my chequered career was spending 6 weeks on location in Malta producing a TV series for SBS, which I also edited.

I've been a tech presenter on ABC Radio for about 15 years, as well as hosting a tech radio show for 8 years.

So that's me. Today, I still love producing, editing and storytelling. The screens have changed and the tech has evolved like no-one could have imagined. We live in exciting times and the opportunity to learn and grow is still just as exciting. Travelling to NAB in Vegas and partnering with Adobe and Facebook is now the norm.

The internet of things has certainly changed the way we communicate. Everything is connected and that’s what we do – old school skills and attention to detail published on today’s many online platforms.

I share my passion and enthusiasm with ABC listeners around Australia, as well as our clients, so become a client, jump on board, strap in and be part of the ride!

Me in a nutshell - an ESFP born in South Africa during the Chinese year of the rooster. I did the usual school, uni, travel and now I've settled in Australia and loving my JOB.

A fair few of my close family are art directors and producers, or have successful catering businesses, and then there is me... I think I can now safely say that i have established myself in an industry that combines both my passions. Food and Film! If you are really nice to me, I may share my mom's famous rusk recipe or my granny's pickled fish recipe.

So now that we are a little more acquainted, lets get down to business...

I'm pretty damn awesome on social media tools and technologies, with a track record of creating and implementing successful social media campaigns. Working closely with our clients to develop and execute a proactive, social content calendar, managing the phases of digital marketing initiatives from concept right through to delivery and optimisation. I've created strategies, content and built brand awareness, and always keep in touch with fans and followers, encouraging conversation, and answering any customer inquiries on social media pages that we manage.

Selling myself here... I have excellent copywriting and editing skills to communicate an offer or witty update within a limited space, or characters. In fact, I would call myself anally retentive and then some when it comes to my work, but I'm also fun-loving, warm-hearted and kind of charming which comes out naturally when I'm engaging with page fans.

To top it all off, I have a good few websites under my belt where I have proposed, designed, implemented and maintained new site content architecture and navigation scheme for clients website redesign that met their specific business/personal needs, from basic sites to responsive sites.

And because I like a challenge, I've stepped out of my comfort zone and skilled up on the technical side of what we do, getting behind the camera and in the edit suite.
