Everything you need to know about canberra. ONE DESTINATION.


I’m a Newcastle girl who started life as an actor, dabbled in comedy, and now do breakfast radio at HIT104.7 Canberra. After graduating from my degree in theatre from Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, I spent the majority of my early and mid-twenties as a clown and a prostitute. (Literally, I was a clown at Luna Park in Sydney and worked for Opera Australia as an actor, and I was ALWAYS a hooker…. Mum's proud). What else? Well, I am a mess of a human. Nothing ever goes right for me. Even Lena Dunham would judge my messy life. I recently campaigned for adults to be able to order children’s meals in cafes and pubs. I love comedy and sitting down. I also love grated cheese.
