Welcome

Welcome page picG’day and thanks for finding your way to my page! My name is André Leslie and I’m a freelance, multimedia journalist currently living in Sydney.

Having worked in both Europe and Australia, I have 10 years of top level experience in video, radio and online journalism. I’ve worked in breaking news, culture and the arts, environment and human rights, and plenty of other areas too. I’m always curious to pursue new stories and topic areas.

But, sport is my passion and reporting about it comes very naturally. I believe I can tell sports stories from a unique perspective, having played cricket at an international level myself for many years. I have worked as a sports presenter for German broadcaster Deutsche Welle and as a sports correspondent for the ABC and Radio NZ. I’ve also worked as a cricket commentator for over five years for Eurosport.

If you are interested in getting in touch with story ideas or assignments, just send a mail to andre.leslie(at)gmail.com and I’ll be happy to hear from you. If you want to catch up with what I’m working on or reading at the moment, check out my blog or follow me on Twitter.

One thought on “Welcome

  1. Hi André, Reading your book at the moment and have to say it is a very enjoyable read. Like your relaxed writing style ( not sure if that is a best way to describe it !) and you have certainly had me visualising the scenarios and scenery. Qld country born and raised and live in Brisbane now so grew up with cricket and whilst not a tragic do enjoy the game. Have recommended the book to all my friends. All the best for the future.
