I played the piano as a little girl growing up in London. We moved to Hampshire when I was seven and had to leave our piano behind. When we eventually settled in our new home, the third piece of furniture my mother bought was a piano. I was eleven by then, and realised how much I had missed playing music.
It didn’t occur to me to make a living from music and my early career began in financial markets. After five years I switched to financial news. and stayed in that field for fifteen years.
In 2008 I took voluntary redundancy from ThomsonReuters in London, travelled abroad and started to play piano a lot, again.
I wrote a book and became a pianist in a hotel. I was very happy, and there was just no going back.
I now live in the Scenic Rim, Queensland Australia, and blog about my little life in this beautiful part of the world. My Portfolio is a snapshot of projects past and present, as a writer, pianist and working as a commercial talent.Thank you for visiting my blog.
