Born and bred on a farm in the mid-north, I traded boots for books when I moved to Adelaide to study journalism. Spend some time writing for the stock journal in my study days, but found drifting once I completed my degree. This meant travel, a dabble in the teaching game, but mostly hospitality work at a 24 hour bakery. I love writing, I love listening to people's stories and I love, respect and appreciate the rural community, which makes working at the Stock Journal such a great opportunity. Fun facts are that I love to cook, have seen all the Marvel films (way too many times) and impulse bought a compound bow a few years ago.
