I was a 25 year old photographer who helped open Brisbane's live music venue The Zoo in December 1992. I ran the venue for the following 24 years looking after all facets of the business. During that time I also worked on music festivals including Livid, The Big Day Out and the Queensland Music Festival. I am currently still working on the Laneway Festival and The Hidden Lanes Festival. I am a mother to a 17 year old young man. I try to encourage and support the local music community and the future creative generation through mentoring and general kindness.
