A passionate advocate for bringing viewers more than the headlines, Lachlan delivers the human story in news. While capturing the devastation of events such as the Nepal earthquake, the Washington Navy Yard mass shooting and the Moore (Oklahoma) tornado, he also discovered stories of hope and resilience that may have otherwise been easily lost.
Lachlan has reported on many significant world events. In April 2015, he broadcast live from the shores of Gallipoli as the sun rose on the 100th Anniversary of Anzac Day. On November 22, 2013, he joined thousands of people in the pouring rain at Dealey Plaza to mark 50 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Lachlan has also broadcast live from myriad sporting triumphs including The America’s Cup, The Masters and Boston Marathon, as well as enjoying sit-down interviews with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Priding himself on his skills as an investigative journalist, Lachlan has, over the years, revealed loopholes in domestic smoking laws and exposed major companies that admitted “buying Australian” costs too much while farmers are forced to dump fresh food.
Lachlan has been nominated for a prestigious Kennedy Award in the Outstanding Television News Reporting category, and in 2012 was awarded a CNN Journalism Fellow scholarship.
Lachlan has a degree in International Relations and Political Science from the Australian National University and a post-graduate diploma in Media Communication.
