About the author


In 1999 I attended Livid Festival as a tiny teen, my love of music, festivals, arts and culture grew from that momentous moment. As much as I enjoy a gig, I dig getting out of town and escaping into nature exploring secret beaches and waterfalls. I decided at some point that I better get onto that Uni degree, hey? I lived in Freo for several years then came back to my hometown to attend QUT to get that BA in Media & Communications. Can catch me procrasta-cleaning, finding the perfectly ripe avo at the markets or laughing enthusiastically at the slightest of amusement.
