freelance writer | lifestyle + rock journalist | communication + media | workshops

I enjoyed tea and biscuits with Jon Bon Jovi, went hiking with Midnight Oil, have been drunkenly serenaded by Chris Isaac and was almost trampled at a hip-hop show in Cuba.

Over a three-decade journalistic career, I have  interviewed thousands of people, from musicians and swimmers to croc wranglers, politicians and storytellers.

I love to read, asks lots of questions and has spend much of my career writing about the arts which constantly fascinates me and fills the creative bucket. Words, bright colour, music, swimming pools, good conversation, interesting people and languages make me deeply happy.
