Jeff was drafted as the number one pick in the 1994 AFL draft, and after three years with the Fremantle Dockers, went on to play football for the Melbourne Demons, a club he stayed with for 11 years. During his professional football career, he won the Melbourne Football Club’s Best and Fairest count and achieved All-Australian selection. He is now a life member of the club.
Having been consumed with the internet and social media since his retirement, Jeff’s passion lead him to establishing White Echo, where he now helps both individuals and brands establish their presence online.
Jeff discovered a need in the market when he first started his own Twitter account @JeffWhite34 back in March 2009. It was there that Jeff noticed the power of instant interaction. Through intensive research, through helping friends such as Gary Ablett Jnr, Pro Golfer Adam Scott and various local businesses, Jeff established a simple way to assist those looking to increase their social media presence.
This idea, this philosophy of full time management has to this day enabled him and his team to assist over 70+ companies worldwide since 2010.
By channeling his own self instincts that allowed him to perform at the highest level in his chosen sport for 14 years, this passion is now channelled towards White Echo clients.
When not attached to an Apple device, Jeff enjoys jet-skiing, watching footy and spending time with his family.
Sandi comes to the White Echo team with a strong background in writing and editing – and with a huge passion for social media.
After completing a Bachelor of Arts (Cinema Studies and Cultural Studies) at Melbourne University, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Media Production from RMIT University, she spent time building her freelance writing portfolio, as well as taking up the position of Editor at a Sydney-based publication.
In 2009, she founded Onya Magazine where she still holds the title of Director and Editor-In-Chief.
When not writing, editing or fiddling with her camera, Sandi can be found coordinating a youth program named Camp Awakenings, cooking, reading, enjoying live music, watching films and laughing with friends.
Sandi is never too far from her iPhone, Canon EOS or MacBook Pro.

“As a footballer, I can now connect and engage with the AFL community, thanks to social media. I love using social media to connect with fans. White Echo have really helped in educating me on how to best use social media – and it’s been invaluable discussing all areas of it with Jeff White, because as a former AFL player, he understands exactly where I’m coming from. White Echo have also assisted me in building my website, and they are a constant sounding board for my ideas. Whether it be advice, hands-on assistance or generating ideas and strategy, the White Echo team really have everything covered.”
