Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Peppermint Magazine, designer, photographer, mother, passionate serial social entrepreneur.



Thanks for dropping by. This space brings together many of the eclectic projects that form my life - including Peppermint, my photography and design work and my current passions that usually revolve around health, happiness, social justice and sustainability (and often chocolate). 

I started Peppermint Magazine in 2008. With a background in graphic design, photography and fashion design combined with an obsessive interest in ethics, natural living and environmental awareness, I was driven to try and bridge the gap between sustainability and style. Peppermint is now the leading eco fashion and lifestyle magazine in Australia and beyond, showcasing sustainability, style and substance. I juggle a full life – one I am super grateful for – publishing a magazine alongside a team I love dearly while being a mama and wife, along with juggling various other balls (often in the air at once, sometimes rolling away in multiple directions) like and freelance design and photography. 

Motivations? Kindness, health, being a good human, mindful living and things that matter (like chocolate).

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

Just a little side note: I am extremely lucky that so many people send me emails everyday. Sadly, however, it means that it makes it impossible to reply to them all. If it's regarding a photography or design job, I will get back to you ASAP!
