Courtney Carthy lives in Melbourne by way of rural New Zealand. Courtney recently finished a near-decade-long stint working at the ABC and has taken on independent projects, including Inflatable Regatta. Inflatable Regatta started as a fun and cheap afternoon out on the Yarra River and became an annual boating event for thousands after it opened up to the public. Through this event Courtney has joined the Yarra Riverkeepers and Yarra River Business Associations while helping to activate the river where possible. Day to day, Courtney runs a creative audio company and ad agency.
