Profile: When given the opportunity to go to festivals or gigs, listen to music, talk about music, and write about music, I enter a happy space. I find my happy place. I can bang on endlessly about the bass player's chest hair or how I wrestled bridesmaid style for the guitarists pick until the cows come home. My 9-5 sees me making play dough and spaghetti necklaces at a kindergarten. For me to be out of the house, not at work and squished firmly into the barrier of a thumping gig, my degree of happiness is off the chart. When I do go to a gig I'll be sure to tell you all about it but in the meantime I'll be writing about my failed attempts to get backstage and the amazing shapes my body can make to wrangle my way to the front of a crowd. I'm not a music journalist as such, and more often than not I'll veer off topic as my concentration span resembles a goldfish! I may start off writing about a secret sideshow, a favourite you tube clip or an important lyric and end up sharing gazpacho recipes!  I've always thought it would be nice to “Do what you love, love what you do” and by Jove this is my ticket.
