Through my workshops, art and published works I share my knowledge, culture and a very special connection to the world around me. I create tools and resources with my art, my written work and my cultural knowledge that helps others connect with the land they love on and form a stronger understanding of their own identity and self worth. 


My Indigenous family heritage belongs to the Biripi and Worimi people of the Manning river area of New South Wales. I take a lot of pride in not only my Indigenous heritage, but all of the influences that are sewn into the tapestry that is my blood line. 


I enjoy facilitating workshops and courses that allow me to share my culture and connection to country by encouraging individuals to learn from observation and  interpretation of the natural flora, fauna, sacred spaces and cultural  landscape that which makes up our immediate environment. 
As a leader within my family and the wider community, I feel I have a responsibility to speak up, to call out injustice, to share my truth, to empower and encourage others through living by example the my core values of Truth, cultural integrity, honest, connection, equality and respect.

***I wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Australia. I acknowledge and pay respect to the Gumbainggirr people who are custodians of the land I live on in the beautiful Bellingen Valley. I would also like to acknowledge and thank the Elders, both those who have passed and those who are with us, for the knowledge and wisdom the have shared and the strength and determination they have shown.
