Ruby Newport – scenestr of the day

Published in SOD  
What do you do?

Program Assistant at Queensland Music Festival.

Why do you do it?
For the love of art! Certainly not for the money.

What do you love about the city you live in?
Well, I grew up in Gladstone where there wasn’t much to do so Brisbane is a nice comparison. It’s great to have access to high-quality theatre and live music.

Where did you go for your last holiday?

What's your favourite item of clothing?
My mustard-coloured scarf. It’s a good colour and it keeps me warm.

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
'Star Trek – Deep Space Nine'. My grandpa introduced me and I was hooked.

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
Paris, 1903.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us?
Takeaway. You’re picking it up on the way over. Your shout.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
Trust your gut instinct.

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
Why would I do that?

Are you happy with your work/ life balance?
Well, we’re currently in the lead up to presenting Queensland Music Festival which runs 7-30 July, so there isn’t much of a balance currently. I love what I do though so I’m happy to sacrifice my life/ sleep until August.

How do you define success?
Getting up in the morning. It’s a good start, right?

What's your spirit animal?
An ermine (stoat).
