I recently returned to Tasmania after twelve years spent living in Melbourne. Growing up in Tasmania, I developed a deep love for wild weather and potatoes. I like bushwalking, talking shop about music, cooking, and cycling (slowly).
I have a long history of performing music, playing my first gig at age twelve, and spending most of my twenties playing in bands. I ran a record label, promoted more shows than I can count, managed a studio / rehearsal space, and toured Australia many times over on a shoestring budget.
I spent a decade working in online communications roles in the NGO sector and three years freelancing as a motion picture professional before making a career change into the horticulture industry in 2018. I completed my Diploma of Horticulture in 2019, while working as a Nursery Hand at two production nurseries. I have a passion for Australian native plants, and a drive to try to make the world a better place, even in small ways, through my work.
I acknowledge and pay my respects to the muwinina and palawa / pakana peoples, the traditional custodians of nipaluna / Hobart and lutruwita / Tasmania, the country on which I live and work.
