After departing CIT Solutions with the intention of moving back to Sydney, I was offered the opportunity to undertake a contract with ABC TV as Production Coordinator for the documentary series The House with Annabel Crabb. Blending production responsibilities with organisation and logistics, this role required everything from booking crew and equipment to data wrangling and archive requests.
