About Me

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. 

Volunteering

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).

Education

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.

I’m active on most platforms including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, Tumblr, Snapchat. Just look for my name.

Thanks for stopping by.
