31st January 2019 Update
I refer to myself as she/her, wife, mum, murri, business owner, educator/trainer, volunteer, #deadlyrunner,
I blog very infrequently these days – social media hasn’t completely killed blogger, but it does really give it a run for its money. I publish elsewhere including Iscariot Media, Deadly Bloggers, the Critical Classroom and Dark and Disturbing.
Me & social
I love communication, with my world changing when I discovered Web 2.0 in late 2008. This saw me create the first and only directory of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander bloggers. I written and presented for a number of years about Indigenous engagement in a digital context and with social media.
My volunteer work includes being the Vice-President of the Everton Park State High School P&C. Regionally, I’m on the Management Committee of the South East Queensland Indigenous Chamber of Commerce. Nationally, I have been a non-Executive Director of Viscopy which eventually merged with the Copyright Agency, and on the board of the First Australians Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FACCI).
In 2016 I was nominated as a Queensland Digital Champion and just recently was appointed to the inaugural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Business and Innovation Reference Group. I served a year on the Queensland Government’s Procurement Industry Advisory Group. I also helped found Indigenous Business Month and Black Coffee (nationally).
I have a Bachelor of Commerce, and mum to the annoyance of my mother half-completed Graduate Diploma in Education and Master of Education (it’s on my to-do list).
I’m a Mum. That’s a big part of my identity. I have four amazing children who are all almost adults. Watching them grow is one of the biggest thrills of my life.
I started this blog in 2010. This is a personal blog where I share everything from what I’m feeling/thinking, politics, race, parenting, business and the odd fatshion post here and there.
Thanks for stopping by.
