I am a radio documentary/feature maker with the national public broadcaster, ABC Radio National. It is a wonderful job in which I get to meet all sorts of fascinating people. I focus on environmental issues, and music in my programs but have covered all sorts of things, from the secret history of lacemakers from France, who came to Sydney to a story of the Amerindians in Guyana. I've also edited a book called In their branches, with short stories about the trees people have loved.

My husband Nick is a professional guitarist - both performer and teacher, specialising in Atlantic soul, alt country and has done a lot of tv and session work with singer songwriters.
A couple of years ago we had a fantastic time touring Europe for a few months with our son (now 11yo), and using Airbnb with delight.
We live in Sydney in the 'inner west' in an old, restored terrace house, and love sailing our 12 foot boat on the harbour, time in the wonderful National Parks that surround the city, and camping on the coast and in the bush.
We're now looking forward to some time in NYC, Washington and Mexico.
