What do you do?
Haha, what a loaded question. For the most part I am designer/creator of accessories label Dorothy Love and working as event and sponsorship consultant for Mountain Goat Beer. With a handful of other creative and arts driven projects on the go. Oh, and I've been a performer in corporate entertainment since 2006... you know hula hooping, fire eating, never ending storms of glitter – that sort of thing.
Why do you do it?
Heck. Why not all the things? I can only do what inspires and excites me. I believe in a positive contribution to my place in this vast planet. For me, that is to create and interact.
What do you love about the city you live in?
Brisbane is almost exploding underneath its surface with a web of overwhelmingly talented, creative and passionate people who aren’t afraid to shape the world around them. We have a new identity forming and the years of creatives/entrepreneurs leaving to go down south is coming to a close.
Where did you go for your last holiday?
Holiday. Holi. Day. Dae. Sundae. Yum.
What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
Jeans. Because if you *absolutely* have to wear pants. Plus they have a proven record as ‘getting things done’ attire.
What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
Do I have to pick a favourite candy too?! I was down with 'Captain Planet'... Oh! 'Rugrats' too. Tommy was the man. 'ROUND THE TWIST'. Yeaahhh! Can we talk about books. HP is my life blood. ('Harry Potter' incase someones pulled a sweet obliviate spell on you).
If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
Tacos. I'd probably go a black bean and mushroom chipotle combo, fresh avocado, coriander and lime, pico de gallo. I would definitely make some Tamales as well. We could make them together. Making a meal and eating it with friends is the best.
What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
To trust myself.
Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I hate having wet hair. Im obsessed with planners and diaries. (Two for one in secrets, lucky!)
Are you happy with your work/life balance?
Balance could be better. Waaaay better. But I'm ferocious when working on a project that I love. Long days – although exhausting – ultimately feeds right back into a happy heart. I am working towards weekends this year though. Simplify and amplify!
How do you define success?
The internet tells me: Success [suh k-ses] – noun 1. the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors;the accomplishment of one's goals. So I would say success for me is about doing all the things while listening to '90s pop (well at least that's what is it today. Got to set the bar somewhere).
What's your spirit animal?
The colossal squid. Ok, thats probably a bit off but I just really like that guy. He is so mysterious and has a doughnut shaped brain. DOUGHNUT BRAIN.
