WHAT IS YOUR PASSION?
Since I was a child I`ve always been compelled to look for things that interested and excited me, that would make me grow and believe me, it wasn`t always comfortable.
I now realise that I invited those challenges so I could learn about myself, find my purpose and give my life deeper meaning.
I studied a Marketing and Advertising degree and after graduation, at 21, traveled India without a
plan or map. After that, I arrived in London with only £50 but took the risk to trade-in a secure graduate position at a big insurance company for a place at drama school. Lots of waitressing paid the bills…
Back in Australia I let go of a place in Sydney’s leading Shakespeare company because after a random phone call, I landed a job as Sales and Marketing Manager at a fledgling film magazine and because of my love of film I knew I had to give it a go. My job at the magazine included being Creative Director of the first, now multi-million dollar, Australian “Inside Film” Awards. This led to many freelance jobs in independent and commercial film and TV as an actor, Art Director, costume maker, First Assistant Director and producer. I accumulated a mountain of experience both in-front and behind the camera.
I then returned to the world of theatre where I worked as a therapeutic Clown Doctor in children`s hospitals and as a stilt-walker touring no less than seven countries. When I was working at a theatre festival in Germany, I met my Swiss husband. I moved to Switzerland at 36 years old and learnt German – a challenge that deserves a medal!
I now work in Switzerland as a live video coach, a public speaking and comedy coach, an MC and as a stand-up comic. I`m at a place where I’m able to share the lessons I’ve learned from my life in a unique way that can empower you. In fact what I am doing right NOW appears to have been inevitable all along – it makes sense of the choices I was compelled to make and the improvised way that I lived my life – because now, my life and business have a deeper meaning.
That is my wish for you too. I hope you join me.
Allow me to inspire you to overcome your fear and move forward in the direction of YOUR dreams.
