7 Things about me
I have died my hair pretty much every colour you can imagine
Another kind weird thing I had going! I really enjoy changing my hair, a lot! I dyed it back to its natural colour a few months ago and I can already feel myself getting bored! I have had blue, green, pink, purple, orange, red, blonde, and silver hair, and of course my natural colour; brown.
I used to have 9 piercings in one ear
Yep you heard me right! I went through this weird phase before I found tattoos, where I filled my body with piercings. So in my left ear I had tragus, conch, industrial, 3 x lobe piercings, snug, rook, and helix piercings. Although the only ones that I have kept are my conch, and lobe piercings.
I am a classically trained clarinetist
So I started learning clarinet in my year 7 music program and fell in loved immediately! I learnt all the way through high school with my amazing teacher, and then got into the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and did a 3 year degree in performance! I now pretty music work full time as a musician!
I was a total nerd in highschool
I mean let’s be honest. This hasn’t really changed now anyway haha. But I was your standard A+ student, with her hair pulled back in a tight bun, best friends with the teachers, and class captain. As you can imagine, that didn’t put me very high in the social standings, and left me open to bullying galore, but thats a story for another day!
I am a grandma at heart
My favourite place to be is at home on the couch, in my dressing gown and ugg boots, drinking my cup of tea. I try to go out drinking with friends and I make it to about 10pm before I am ready to call it a night! Did I mention that my usual bedtime is 8.30?
I can play 10 instruments
It all started with clarinet, and then I kind of just wanted to keep learning more… so here’s the list:
I love music theatre
Name me a musical, and I can almost guarantee I will be able to sing all the words. My favourite part of my job is playing in the pits of musicals, and I spend my car drives lately either rapping every character’s part in Hamilton, or singing and crying along to Dear Evan Hansen! (Side note: I went all the way to New York just to see Dear Evan Hansen and it was the best day of my life, I discovered you can cry for an entire 2 hour performance.)
