a bit about me:

My career is best described as eclectic. I'm a writer, actor, artist and business builder. 

I've owned a cafe and managed several others; created seasonal wardrobes for high profile, career women and dressed models for runway shows; designed several websites for clothing stores, cafes and writers. And, I've spent time inside a chicken, a cow and a rabbit suit, that is. 

In 2015 I moved to the Blue Mountains with my cat, Vitruvius and fell in love. The mountains are the perfect place to develop and embrace my writing goals, to while away the hours reading, or getting dirt under my nails gardening or just whining about how cold it is.


My ideal day is reaching my word count, or making art, or tinkering on my house and feeling guilty for not going on a bush walk, which I last did (in order of latest walk):

I upload new photos here


FYI: I'm still waiting for that someone special ... to ask for my autograph, that is.
