Gabrielle Ahern

I knew from a very young age that writing and photography would always play an important part of my life. I was interested in the art of visual story telling through comic books but it was my introduction to the stories by author J.R.R.Tolkien by my parents that prompted me to write and illustrate my own stories and poems. I followed my instincts and immersed myself in film and media studies at university, which led to a career in the television industry. I edited and produced stories for different programs broadcast in Australia and overseas in Singapore and Great Britain.     

My Story

When I decided to break away from television, I was curious to explore new avenues in science. I studied an undergraduate degree with Honours, majoring in Marine Biology and Ecology. I had a fascinating time studying the complexities of marine and terrestrial environments, and different flora and fauna species. Following graduation, I developed my research and writing skills in ecology. 

In 2012, I realized I could combine all my interests, and make a living creating content through digital media by establishing Salty Wave®. I haven’t looked back since.


I like to experiment with various writing styles and visual techniques. I’m never afraid to tackle any project or find new, creative ways to come up with something fresh and original.

Since the start of my business, I have independently produced various projects for commercial entities and research organisations. I am a published author and my stories have featured in online publications. 

Like everyone, my professional career has negotiated a few challenges and overcome obstacles, but I have taken advantage of these moments to develop my skills further. 


Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to learn more about my work or my innovative approach to content creation.


I'm always looking for new and exciting adventures.
