Portrait of Sean Dooley

Sean Dooley

Sean Dooley is a Melbourne author who works as a television comedy writer. He has a weekly spot with 3RRR Breakfasters and regularly contributes to The Age and ABC radio about birds, the environment, sport and, well, anything really.

His greatest claim to fame is that in 2002 he broke the Australian birdwatching record for seeing the most species in one year.

He then wrote about it in The Big Twitch, thereby outing himself as a nerd. He’s part of the writing team for the ABC’s hugely successful Spicks and Specks.
