    2019 +

    In early 2019, I was introduced to the Kaospilot methodology of learning design.

    Oh boy - "transformational" is an understatement!

    After completing the local Masterclass in April, I traveled to Aarhus, Denmark to further my experience at KaosHQ. I am hooked!

    I would recommend this training to anyone who develops programs of learning - whether online or in person; adult or child.

    PS. I'm now certified Master Archer and Experience Designer!

    The Moth Melbourne StorySLAMs


    I repped NYC's The Moth in Australia from 2015, as Local Producer, running over 75 open mic StorySLAMs (and counting)! Over 700 storytellers have jumped up and shared a story from their own lives with a room of strangers.

    It's a magical event and remains very close to my heart.

    I have also been known to get up and share a story of my own from time to time.
