Jess Davis

I’m a climate reporter for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, with more than 7 years experience in radio, TV and online. 

I predominantly work as a video journalist shooting both vision and stills on the Lumix GH5 and occasionally iPhone, including for live crosses. I edit using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Lightroom.

I speak Arabic, German and Swedish, with an honours degree in political science and Arabic. I’m also an avid outdoors person, rock climbing, trail running and gravel riding. 


Radio current affairs and docos

I began my career in radio and have produced 5 long-form radio documentaries for ABC Radio National. My first doco in 2015 was about a man I met in Syria and his journey fighting for the Free Syrian Army before fleeing to Europe by boat from Turkey.
