Kirsty and George's partnership has long extended to the professional with Kirsty's management of George's complex public and professional commitments via NMI. Their collaboration was a natural one. It followed her journalistic career spanning twenty years in print and television with national Australian media organizations including the Herald group and Channel NiTrev the truck book launchne.

Kirsty inherited NMI's business management: financing, executive production and marketing of several independent documentaries featuring George Negus. Together with George, she developed and wrote a series of Penguin-published children's books called Trev the Truck based in rural Australia.

All photographs including the cover of The World From Italy and The World From Islam were taken by Kirsty who also assists George with research and logistics.
