Hello, I'm David Blayney.

I study journalism and accounting 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.

Throughout my studies, I've taken part in numerous extra-curricular activities, including the CBS Wesfarmers High Achievers Program, the Curtin Journalism Shanghai Study Tour, and the New to Curtin mentoring program. In 2017, I spent a semester abroad studying at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom.

My course of study is accredited by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and CPA Australia.

This is some of the work I've done.
