I’m Sam Mills, age 19. I’m studying a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business double degree at Swinburne University, majoring in Journalism. It has been my dream to pursue a career in journalism ever since a drama project in grade 3, where I essentially played the role of my inspiration Eddie McGuire in a re-creation of ‘The Footy Show’.

While sport is my favourite interest, I also enjoy writing and talking about music, politics, transport, history, and even more generally, pop culture.

Despite my relative young age, I currently contribute to two different media organisations:

  • AFL Draft Central – Writing on the superstars of tomorrow in the TAC Cup, focusing on the Dandenong Stingrays.
  • RPP FM – Talking about the big issues on the Mornington Peninsula as a reporter for ‘Eye on the Peninsula’. Olympic bronze medal archer Alec Potts is one just person I have interviewed.

In the past I have also had articles published by ‘The Roar‘, ‘The Armchair Selector’, ‘Football Nation’, ‘BigFooty News‘, and UniPollWatch.

In addition to these roles, I also manage three diverse social media accounts:

  • SwoopCentral – Something I’m working on based around a fans perspective of the Collingwood Football Club.
  • thatSAMkid – A YouTube channel I run that showcases a lighter (some would say angrier) side of me.
