About me

A small introduction about my self

Niki Doyle

Journalist and Code Tinkerer

In 2013, I reached a significant milestone in my career: I have now been a working member of the media for half my life. Yet, I consider this just the beginning.

My passion is people. Informing and connecting with the public drove me to become a reporter more than a decade ago. Since then, I've focused on re-imagining the newspaper and media industry to ensure it continues to be relevant in the digital age.

I hope you'll take a moment to check out my work and shoot me a note if you'd like to connect.
