Chris created Jet Streamer to do one of his favourite things: help entertainers, storytellers, educators and entrepreneurs find their audience. He got frustrated with seeing all the wasted energy that entrepreneurs and small businesses were putting into podcasts- only to end up with a bad-sounding result that didn't connect with their audiences.
Chris has been making podcasts since 2009 when his final-year university assignment featured a 40-minute radio play-style comedy-drama featuring a superhero working as a windscreen washer (don't ask!). After studying Commercial Radio at Swinburne University he worked at radio station Magic 89.9 in Port Lincoln, South Australia, hosting the breakfast show and holding down a busy production department. He interviewed some pretty big names, worked on some pretty big projects, but his top achievement? Making the moody teenage work experience kid laugh at one of his station promos!
Moving back to Melbourne, and completing a Bachelor's degree in Audio Engineering he worked as corporate sound roadie, did location and post-production sound for a heap of independent films, and was the "Crime Stoppers" guy on 3AW radio in Melbourne on a Saturday morning. He's worked in PR, plus he's worked as a journalist covering motorcycle racing (that's not related, he just really likes motorbike racing).
He's proud of the way he can blend the technical side of audio with the more esoteric production and presentation aspects of podcasts, thanks to his media and PR experience. Handy, when your job is helping people create podcasts!
When he's not heading up Jet Streamer or hosting the Jet Streamer Podcast you'll find him arguing on the internet with other Formula 1 fans, on a bike ride enjoying his beautiful South Gippsland home, or swearing loudly on the golf course with his partner Kate.
