About The Founder
Timothy Thorpe is a local Melbourne-based creative who recently completed his Masters of Marketing Communications at The University of Melbourne. At 26-years-old he has served as a co-editor for La Trobe University’s upstart Magazine, an intern at Beat Magazine, a social media guru for various businesses, and the tastemaker behind the popular hyper-local publication TLF.

Timothy founded the platform as a Hip-Hop blog during an assignment for his undergraduate degree, allowing him an outlet to share his extensive knowledge of the local music scene. Five years on, The Local Frequency has become a prominent go-to source for the discovery of local Melbourne artists, events, news, and releases.
