I’m a business owner, trainer / educator, Murri and a mum.
I’m a business owner of a creative agency called Iscariot Media. As an educator I’ve lectured at Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology. I lecture in Indigenous education at the Australian Catholic University. I also am the creator/curator of an Indigenous education resources website.
I also teach in a business context, mostly on social media and marketing. I’ve worked with Edgeware Creative Entrepreneurship, Yolla Consulting, and Indigenous Business Australia training in marketing and social media.
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 also work in partnership with by husband to create an amazing ongoing artistic curatorial project from which we sell the best Aboriginal designed T-shirts in Australia!
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’m a non-Executive Director of Viscopy, the Australian copyright body for visual artists. I also represent Queensland 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 also helped to found Indigenous Business Month.
I have a Bachelor of Commerce, a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, as well as Certificate IVs in Broadcast Media and Design. Much to the annoyance of my mum (and sometimes myself) I have a half-completed 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.
This is my personal blog and information presented here is of a general nature and represents my own opinion.
