10 things you didn't know about me...

1. I am a Gemini (Multiple personalities). I love astrology, tarot cards, crystals, fairies, dragons... anything mythical / magical.


2. I love rock music. As I kid I wanted to be a rockstar and taught myself to play the guitar. I made multi tracks with a cassette recorder, my guitar and an electronic drum beat from a keyboard. Years later I learned that this is how Dave Grohl started the Foo Fighters before he put a band of people together. Maybe thereโ€™s hope for my music career yet.


3. I have a tumour on my thyroid the size of a tennis ball. Unfortunately where it is makes it difficult to remove so they wonโ€™t surgically remove it until it affects my breathing.


4. I was once unemployed and homeless and ended up living in a garage in Hamilton. I spent my days playing Tony Hawk on PlayStation. When I finished the game I realised I really needed to get my shit together.


5. I am very loud, probably too loud. But in some situations I can also be really shy.


6. I love food, wine and cooking shows. I love eating out, trying new things and then trying to recreate them at home. I never write down a recipe so everything I make is slightly different each time. It drives my family mad.


7. I love to explore new places, soaking up inspiration and just people watching. I also love second hand stores, garage sales and markets, looking for clothes, art, books, vinyl and furniture for restoration.


8. I wrote my book RULES + REBELS as a kind of personal therapy, trying to find some learning in the massive debt and chaos Iโ€™d created. Itโ€™s my business story but includes some very dark periods of depression, living on the edge of bankruptcy and a not so pretty battle with an autoimmune disease. I was nervous about publishing it and still get emotional when someone tells me it helped.


9. My favourite colour is pink, because technically black isnโ€™t a colour.


10. I live in Tauranga, New Zealand, and love the ocean but I canโ€™t eat seafood.
