About Me

ABOUT ME

I am now semi-retired from a recent career in working with people with mental illness, TV documentary producing, and teach film production and prior to that, farming.
I currently am an owner-builder, renovating my house and volunteering one day a week at a welfare centre.
I grew up in the bush, worked in agriculture ( incl. 2 yrs in Korea).
I have three beautiful and adventurous daughter.

Interests

I'm a lover of music, nature, adventure & am moved by acts of social justice, compassion & equality
I'm interested in buddhism and its practice - not the mystic or ritual but the practical, letting-go-expectation, accepting what is before me ... and together with meditation, it is a rewarding work in process.
I love my three daughters dearly (they've travelled the world).

I sing in an accapella group; like live jazz, funk & blues gigs and usually will be up dancing. I play some didg', keep bees & completed my psychotherapy grad-diploma.
