IT'S ALL ABOUT ME
1. CURLY GIRL
As a little Shirley Temple look alike, I enjoyed good chips and lollipops (I know, but ships didn't work as well)
The youngest of three, I noticed WAAAAY less baby photos.... but I made up for it by attempting to be the centre of attention everywhere I went. Jazz ballet, Tap dancing & Calisthenics got me many years of stage time and snazzy leotards to boot!
2. WHAT TO BE?
With both my creative and analytical sides of the brain in deep negotiations, I either wanted to be a Clown or an Architect. Until I realised more people were scared of Clowns than liked them.... Thanks IT.
Studying Interior Decorating, Costume Design, Pattern Drafting (and more) I got my first corporate job as a Buyer for Lincraft. 15 years in corporate Retail Buying and Merchandise Planning, leading teams in both Australia and the UK, my Analytical brain was on fire! My Creative one was lacking... until I found STAND UP COMEDY!
3. COMEDY BABY!
It's like I'd just had a baby (without the scaring). I was hooked and it opened up my world to so many forms of performance work I'd never dreamed of doing. MCing events, Kids Entertainment & storytelling, Improv, Acting and Radio Presenting all enabled me to quit the corporate world to chase the performers dream.
5 years of Stand up and 3 successful Melbourne Comedy Festival shows later, I birthed another metaphorical baby: WINNI WIZARD. My Wiggles dream was ruined by a way more talented Redhead (we all know her name), but personally I think Winni is better!
