Following a few years in the social services sector after University, I spent almost a decade working in international development. I lived in a range of cities and countries before moving back to Australia in the early 2000s where I commenced work with the Queensland Government in project management and executive liaison roles.

In late 2012 I made a HUGE life change—finishing up my career with government, taking a redundancy and making a very literal seachange.


I’m now living on Queensland’s Fraser Coast, pursuing freelance and online writing work (on a part-time basis) while becoming a more zen and evolved person. Kinda.

I started blogging in early 2009 and (after several incarnations) Debbish is now a reflection of my new life. I’ve started reviewing books on a regular basis; am still a television addict; love to rant or theorise about all sorts of crap.
