About

See? I look exactly like my avatar.

* Is a Twitterholic (@mediamum).

* Did a BA with a major in Comms as a Distance Ed student while raising her four wonderful children, graduating in 2005 with a Distinction average. At her graduation her daughter screamed “Go Mum!” from somewhere in the middle of the auditorium. Best. Day. Ever.

* Completed a Grad Dip in Adult Education in 2005, funded by TAFE NSW.

* Is a Masters student and holds a TA appointment at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. Would like to follow it at some stage with a PhD – you know, in my spare time ;).

* Would do anything for her four children (two coming with her to the USA, two chose to stay in their high schools back in Australia).

* Is a start-up widow to the founder of itechne in Australia and scribetribe.us in the USA, @jedwhite, whom she both admires and adores, even though he can’t change a loo roll.

* Is one of the biggest Split Enz/anything Finn fans in the universe. My tagline is part of a lyric from The Devil You Know, a Neil Finn song. (“Hung on a cliff, in search of something big.”)

Bryce at Flyball

Bryce at Flyball

* Loves competing in flyball (dog sport) and has a dog in Australia, Bryce, that has a national flyball title. I’m looking forward to getting a small dog in the US that can be my new flyball buddy.

* Used to work in the music industry. Started in Australian band management and moved to international touring artists. She’s thanked on Moving Pictures last album.
