Ralph Barba | Awaken Your Story

Today’s pod guest is another dear friend of ours, a gentleman who captured us by his open and kind heart: Ralph Barba

Ralph lives in the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia. As well as sharing how he finally made the transition to be living his passion at the age of 38, Ralph also shares his late mum’s fascinating transition, when as a 16 year old in Italy, she became a proxy bride, to his dad who lived in Australia, a story that Ralph fondly calls “Love At No Sight.”

Ralph’s years as a teacher, highlighted to him, the feeling of fulfilment and an unconditional willingness to make a difference. In recent years, we have been fortunate beneficiaries of Ralph’s kindness, as he guided and assisted us with video production and much welcomed advice.

Ralph Barba left a teaching career 20 years ago to start a curriculum development and education consultancy. He gained 25 years experience in commercial radio, producing and presenting radio shows for the likes of Triple M, SEN 1116, ABC radio and ABC Radio Australia.

Then 15 years ago, Ralph founded and is now the creative director of Making Media Australia – a mashup of his passions in life. Making Media Australia has been creating live, and on-demand video, audio, radio, and podcasts, & uses media platforms to educate and tell a story in exciting and impactful ways.

At the now youthful age of 57, Ralph says he is doing today what he dreamed of doing when he was 10 years old. For Ralph “Life is very very good.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Ralph on as our guest. We wish for you, our listener, to be inspired to awaken to your passion, and to soon tell your ówn story with the tagline “Life is very very good.
