What do you do?
I manage a party punk band LOLA
and run a boutique music agency, The Sesh'n. I get to do lots of fun stuff through The Sesh'n like interview my favourite bands, review gigs and put on events.Why do you do it?
As Mick Jagger says: "It's only rock & roll, but I like it." And I like it a hell of a lot. However, being born with no music talent meant I have always had to find a way I can be a part of the industry.
Whether that was by chatting with bands before they went on stage, stage managing at festivals, booking my dream line-ups or hosting a radio show, I have always surrounded myself with the best people in the world. . . musicians insert love heart eyes
I don't have an answer for 'why' I started managing a band, but I do know it was a bloody brilliant decision. I went from being an only child to having four brothers I get to travel around Australia with while we have the wildest time! Plus LOLA also happen to be my favourite band so I guess that's lucky.

What do you love about the city you live in?
The local music scene. I get to see my favourite bands play every weekend! Listen to Looch and you'll know what I mean.Where did you go for your last holiday?
Darwin. I'll probably go there for my next holiday as well, I love it.What's your favourite item of clothing?
Ripped jeans. Because they look badass with Converse.What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
Every Saturday morning, Mum and I would watch 'Rod Stewart Live At Royal Albert Hall'. . . I guess it's not a TV show, but it's waaaay cooler than 'The Wiggles' so I'm gonna go with it.If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
14 August, 1994. I want to have a mud fight with Green Day at Woodstock.If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us?
Hot chips and beer. If we're feeling classy, you might get a vegan hamburger on the side.What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
I have no idea. Life is constantly serving up lessons, so it's hard to pick the best one. I love to prove people wrong; I think I have got a lot of my motivation from some of my darkest times. Don't ever, ever give up on what makes you happy. Also smile at strangers and live outside your comfort zone – that's where the cool sh.t happens.Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I have a phobia of moths. And I'm really good at poker.Are you happy with your work/ life balance?
I am lucky that music plays a huge role in both my work and personal life. I can keep my bank account happy by doing what I love and that's a dream come true.
However, this means sometimes I can really struggle to 'turn off' and I'm the queen of burning myself out. When I get run down, I head to the beach.How do you define success?
Happiness. I don't care how corny it sounds, if you're happy, you're successful.What's your spirit animal?
Depends on my mood. Sometimes I'm a lion, sometimes I'm a dolphin.
