My early life was spent in live theatre; acting, direction, designing, writing. That led to a career in television; writing cop shows, panel games and soaps for Crawford Production in Melbourne and Reg Grundy Productions in Sydney and Brisbane. I partnered in one fine dining room and two theatre restaurants (Victorian melodrama and satirical revue…The Mark Twain and The Living Room Brisbane).
As a weekly columnist for the Brisbane Courier-Mail, Brisbane Sun and The Brisbane Sunday Mail, I had a twenty-two-year second career writing lifestyles, food, theatre, fashion, entertainment and mainstream events (London, Paris, California, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hawaii, Finland, all Australian capitals). I do not write about people or places I haven’t experienced. Currently freelancing.
Happily married: two kids, three grand kids, one poodle.
