After my first professional dance performance in my late single digit years, I knew I only ever really wanted to work in roles that allowed me to flex my creative muscle!
Beyond completing a degree in Drama and Dance at the Queensland University of Technology, I count my blessings to have worked as an actor, television and radio presenter, MC, voice over artist, fashion stylist and writer throughout my working life.
In my early 20's, I loved the buzz of being on stage in various model contests around town, including the once-prestigious Bartercard Miss Indy Sports Model Search. I was subsequently invited to represent Australia in the 2001 Miss Tourism International World Final, held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
After hanging up the bikinis and competition sequined gowns, I picked up a mic to MC such model searches, fashion events, trade shows and gala, corporate and charity events. I'm right at home on the mic ... #lovemyjob
During this time, I was offered the chance to add the string of fashion styling to my bow - on the job, while working for a Brisbane-based model agency - and it was love at first style. This lead to presenting styling workshops Australia-wide for retail clients including Westfield, Centro, AMP Capital, Stockland, Dexus & Retail First. I have since worked with individual clientele and styled a number of celebrities, local and international, for events, photo shoots and media calls.
In 2013, inspired after a trip to the US, where I witnessed live breakfast TV production, I was curious about the art of producing. To that end, I read, researched and attended the Univerity de YouTube to plan and produce Social Seen, a lifestyle and events program covering the south-east Queensland social scene. Conducting interviews with Boom Crash Opera's Dale Ryder, Taxiride's Jason Singh and Jon Stevens was pure joy. I had found a new passion - interviewing.
After regularly 'pestering' management at radio station1029 Hot Tomato, I landed a role as Promotions Assistant, adding street team live crosses and casual announcing for outside broadcasts across the Gold Coast to my role. I completely indulged in my passion for interviewing - Rachael Finch, Melanie Vellajo, Candice Dixon & PJ Madam, horse racing identities Matt Cumani & Chris Munce, Dawn Fraser and international motor racing driver Sebastien Bourdais and iconic Australian business woman, Katie Page-Harvey are some of the names I can drop.
These days I continue to thrive in my work as a freelance stylist, actor, presenter and MC - you may have recently seen me on Australia and New Zealand's TVSN as a guest presenter, in television commercials for Price Attack, The Coffee Club or Highgrove Bathrooms or breezing in and out of the magnificant stores at the Gold Coast's Pacific Fair with my clients.
Drop me a line HERE today to reach out. I really look forward to working with you soon.
