What do you do and why do you do it?

I currently work as a HR Officer, which I completely love because I get to work with a wide range of awesome people everyday!

Were you born and raised in Brisbane? If not, where did you grow up and what brought you to Brisbane?

I grew up in Adelaide and moved to Brisbane when I was 17 (right before I started year 12 - yikes!). My mum decided on a sea change for our family and Brisbane was the perfect place.

What kind of music do you listen to and what kind of music do you absolutely HATE?

My music taste is so varied it's just easier to say what I don't like, and that's heavy metal/scream and country music.

Name the best TV shows of all time, and what makes them so good?

My all time favourite TV show is Girls. I love the show so much because the characters are so relatable. Plus I feel like Hanna is my spirit animal.

Name some spots in Brisbane that are good for a Tinder date.

Café Marinara Trattoria in Paddington. It's this super cute little Italian restaurant tucked behind these fairy light filled trees. It's totally dreamy and feels like you've been transported to straight to Italy - perfect for a date!

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

My current go to store is Seed Heritage. The clothes are super comfortable, but they're super stylish at the same time.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

I love riding the City Cat, it's the best way to see the city. Unfortunately I don't have any reason to ride the City Cat.

Where do you go in Brisbane for a casual night out?

For a casual night out, I love heading to Chermside to catch a movie and then onto get some food from either Guzman Y Gomez or Grill'd.

What are the Brisbane spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Mt Coot-tha look out is a must do for any one visiting Brisbane. It has the best view of the city both during the day and at night. Pack a picnic basket, camp out on the grass and watch the sunset!

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

I visited Nice, France about 2 years ago and I immediately fell in love. The food, the people, the weather - it was just the most fabulous place and I definitely want to go back.
