A Hotel Life Australia Editor

  • What do you do and how did you get here?

    I currently live in Melbourne (Australia) and am the Publications Director at Australian digital publication Broadsheet. Previously (and still now) I am a writer, editor and producer, and have spent time traveling, eating, meeting interesting people and writing about all three.

  • What inspires you daily?

    Great people doing exciting, fun things. My friends who are challenging themselves with new projects, career changes, building houses, moving countries and having children. The people I work with who come up with creative concepts. People who are mobile, keep moving forward and stay fresh. People who have time. People who slow down, who are patient, genuine, calm and present. People that challenge me. Places I can escape to. Adventures I plan to take.
