Hello, I'm David Blayney.

I study accounting and journalism at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.

About me.

I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) double degree at Curtin University, majoring in journalism and accounting. I expect to graduate in mid-2020.

In 2017, I spent a semester abroad studying at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. Throughout my studies, I've taken part in numerous extra-curricular activities, including the Curtin Leaders Program, the New to Curtin mentoring program, and the journalism club Newsspeak.

My course of study has been accredited by the three professional accounting bodies: Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, CPA Australia, and the Institute of Public Accountants.

When I'm not studying, I work as a tutor and volunteer with the Western Australian Department of Health.

This is some of the work I've done.
