He began his journalistic career as a cadet on the 'Gympie Times' then moved to reporting for the 'Brisbane Courier' (later the 'Courier Mail'), the 'Sunday Mail', 'Telegraph' and the Melbourne 'Age'. He obtained his Diploma of Journalism in 1928 and a Bachelor of Arts in 1934 from the University of Queensland.
