Welcome to my new website!

Welcome and thank you for visiting my new website.

I have such a love and curiosity for the tourism and events industries and I hope to share my insights and projects with you through this website.

There is still a bit of tweaking to be done, but have a wander through and I would love to know what you think.

In the meantime, will be speaking at the 3rd Annual Regional Events Conference in Townsville, 11 to 13 November, discussing all things Grants at a workshop and panel discussion.

Hope to see you there.
