Completely. There is a lot of problem solving involved but ultimately it is about interpreting the client/artists brief and then facilitating and realising their creative vision.
Good question. There is the cliche. Then there is the state of mind?
I don’t necessarily believe that you need one to be the other. I definitely embrace the camaraderie that comes with working in the studio environment but I also don’t do anything to play down what makes me a woman. I am proud to be a woman working in a male dominated industry but I don’t feel i should adapt my personality to fit it. But perhaps there is a little tomboy in me…
There is a band called Palace who just signed to fiction that I love. I’ve also just worked with an amazing solo artist from the states called Alex Winston. She has a powerful voice and tells heartbreaking stories.

I would love to live in LA or NY. but right now, for the completely opposite experience, I would live in a tiny little town called Yanakie, south east victoria in australia. My parents have a property there. It’s quiet and peaceful. You can see the stars at night. I’m dreaming about that right now… but it’s a long way off.

I have been very lucky that I feel i have many people who have in some way or another guided me through my life and helped me to get to where I am today. Especially the people who have mentored me or managed me in my current career path.
But my mother and father are incredible role models.
Jarvis Bay on the east coast of Australia. I went camping with friends. I don’t necessarily like camping but Jarvis Bay is an untouched national park. The landscape feels prehistoric and the beaches are stunning. We had an amazing time.
Having friends that never let you get away with anything. Remembering that nothing lasts forever and to never take it for granted.
Don’t you forget about me. Simple minds.
Too many songs… Ordinary World by Duran Duran – right now.
Occasionally it’s “You can’t Always get what you want” – Rolling Stones. or “Such Great Heights” – Postal Service.
Sometimes I’d like it to be You Shook Me all night Long by ACDC…
Grab every opportunity that comes your way by the balls. Never hesitate. Always be humble. (My dad told me that first day of school)
