read my back story ...

Thinking I wanted to do something Finance related after high school, I started a Business degree from USYD.
And from 2001 – 2012 I held jobs within the Banking industry before and after completing my bachelors. I’ve worked with St George, CBA, and Macquarie.

It was through these years that I found a thirst for connecting with clients, and wanting to really understand their perspectives. I was not afraid to ask the ‘why’s’. I see it as soft skills I could employ forever.
My passion and my heart however, always turned to creative arts. So after graduating, I went on to train in Film & TV production, followed by a Graduate Diploma in Arts/Design at COFA.

By that time, I had accumulated some years of photography and writing experience volunteering for The AU Review. I was also working in marketing and community support for Saasu.

It was about then that my life kind of took a tumble. I was struggling to breathe coming out of bad relations, I had some bad news in the family, and subsequently fell into a deep depression. I had to reassess and take time out.

Taking more than a year off, I spent it with family, and I made music. It was a late admission to my life, but music is a constant passion. And I waited until I was ready to face the world again to take to the stage and started my music career.

Now I’m working as a freelance writer within the e-commerce sector, and busily building my music artistry.
