I am forever inspired by California but Australia is what I call home. I’m originally from a small beach town in Queensland, Australia. I moved to the big city for university, tried my hand at an even bigger city for work but decided that back by the sea is where I feel most like me.

My days revolve around the world outside my window and the ocean below my balcony. I rise with the sun and thirst for salt and sand. When I’m not at my laptop writing, styling, editing shoots, planning trips away or working for clients, I’m outside surfing, taking off in the van with my boyfriend, listening to my dad’s old records, or practicing yoga.

The Universe works in mysterious ways, and I believe that everything comes full circle. That’s why it is an incredible blessing to now be the Australian member of the FP family unit after falling in love with Free People while traveling through America last year.

Follow along with my journey as I share weekly inspiration from Australia here on the lovely Free People blog!

Perfect fit! I adore Coolum, such a peaceful beachside town. One of the 1st places I travelled to outside of NZ. I remember the perfect beach shacks so close to the beach. Always wanted to live in one.

Sounds like a super cool chick!
