I was born and bred in Australia. 44% of my homeland is desert. I grew up by the ocean, and would have laughed at anyone who told me back then that I'd end up living in the California desert! I've grown to love it.
In 2003 I moved to Joshua Tree. I co-created and produced the Joshua Tree Music festival. 2003-2010
I have alot of things going on at all times...a 9 year old child, a job in Los Angeles in the commercial production industry, a production motorhome and film catering business JT and PalmSprings. The first property I bought in Joshua Tree was the Tumbleweed house...It needed a lot of love! I designed and built the Coyote Hole House. I have just finished renovating The Pretty Flamingo house and added a built in pool. Prelim sketches are happening on my next project, a new construction. I love a good building/renovation project!
I like the energy of Los Angeles but really love to escape to the desert. The vastness, the wide open space... being able to see the horizon. Feeling like a small speck when I sleep on the outdoor bed in summer under the most amazing stars and meteor showers.
