Damien Larkins is a multimedia journalist with almost 20 years experience.

His first job in the media was as a paperboy, delivering the daily news by bicycle in Brisbane's hilly bayside.

From there he's worked in community and commercial radio, at WIN News Tasmania, at the ABC in Canberra, Hobart, the Gold Coast and most recently ran the national broadcaster's Longreach bureau in Outback Queensland.

He's covered bushfires, floods, droughts, protests, Royal visits, major court cases, elections and even the Logies.

Now he's returned to the capital and is ready to take on new challenges.

But his favourite stories come from the remarkable people who live in this unique and diverse region.
