My first book, Seeds of Courage, is a collection of stories, ideas, and snippets of wisdom on how to live a big life through small and gentle acts of courage.
In addition to my book, I have contributed my writing to platforms such as MamaMia, HuffPost, Thrive Global, Allbright, and Hello Sunday Morning.
In my newsletter, I write about topics including gentle productivity, simple living, courage, joy and creativity.
With more than 2 decades of experience as a designer, I work on a variety of projects, ranging from business branding and website design to packaging and book design, including typesetting. I also take on a small number of illustration projects.
As a certified coach, I help folks simplify their live and business, reduce confusion and chaos, and cultivate more joy.
I work with small business owners and freelance types, and also those making the transition from employment to working for themselves.
I'm a Scottish Australian - originally from Glasgow, and I've called Australia home since 2007. Currently, I live on the Mornington Peninsula with my two sons and our adorable dog, Stella.
In 2018, I made the courageous and life-changing decision to give up alcohol - this has reoriented my life in the most magical of ways.
Through all my work, my intention is to create connection - to empower people to recognise that courage often lies within the smallest and gentlest actions. I firmly believe in our inherent creativity and capabilities. It's an honour to guide folks to embrace their potential and live a life fuelled by courage and grounded in authenticity.
