Hey there,
My name is Nathan Foster Vella and I am a student at the University of Wollongong. I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Journalism, and a Bachelor of Communication and Media – majoring in Marketing Communication and Advertising.

At current (because they’re constantly changing), my interests are surrounding;
  • Music; some highlights at the moment include Maggie Rogers, Middle Kids, and MUNA… Also after seeing Tame Impala at Laneway recently ‘Currents’ is back on my ‘Recently Played’.Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
  • Foreign Affairs; the news of the world is so dynamic, and 2017 has been no exception so far. Immigration policy, particularly that of Australia definitely trumps (I had to) anything going on in the USA as of late.
  • Speaking of Immigration policy, the musings of Eva Orner have completely astounded me, definitely worth checking out…
  • and finally Film; ‘Shutter Island’, ‘Inception’, ‘Unbroken’, and more recently ‘Moonlight’, and ‘La La Land’ are nothing short of cinematic masterpieces – on a side note, generally anything featuring Emma Stone is?


This blog will act as a base for all my writing across both degrees, and across numerous subjects. Through this, I will be able to foster both my Journalism portfolio, and share stories with the expansive audience that such a platform offers.

Thanks for dropping by, if you’d like to get in touch feel free to drop me an email or comment,
