My first day at the ABC’s Tokyo bureau turned out to be one of the biggest news days in modern Japanese history.
Five Japanese citizens who had been abducted by North Korea in the 1970s returned home after talks were held between former prime minister Junichiro Koizumi and Kim Jong Il.
Back then, I was a news assistant.
Twenty years later, I’m now a producer and photographer and things have only become busier.
In my time at the ABC I’ve worked with seven correspondents, each with their own skills and quirks.
The job has taken me all over Japan — from deep underwater to see amazing ruins to deep underground to witness incredible science experiments.
