Digby has been working in the local industry for 10 years. He started in the industry as a freelance editor before working full time with Cutting Edge for 2 years. With a growing interest in long form content, Digby moved back into freelance editing to complete a feature length period drama and a feature length documentary. In 2014, demand for more space and bigger facilities lead him to make the jump from Digby Hogan - Freelance Editor to The Empire Post.

LEAD BALL CHASER

Luna joined the team in October 2015 and instantly impressed us with her ball catching abilities. She has been focusing on her 'give me belly scratches' pose and always knowing where the balls are hidden. We look forward to seeing how many balls she can find in one dog park and how quickly she can convince others to give her a belly scratch.
