When I’m not writing small stories, I’m pretty busy doing other things.
Through Brandcamp I work with brave small businesses to develop content that tells their brand stories.
I support and guide my clients to be brave and make good changes that strengthen their brand. I seek to help the whole-hearted to recognise and live up to their values through the way they shape their brand and relate to their customers.
It’s my mission to help my clients tell stories that make people feel excited and connected. Stories that create warm and engaged tribes. My skill is in finding and telling my clients’ stories with nuance, flair, honesty and charm.
Julie Paterson and I are partners in life and the co-creators of our foodblog called Splayd and Crayon. Julie is best known for her textile business Cloth, which has been printing her now iconic fabric designs on sustainable hemp and linen in a shed in regional NSW for almost 25 years. Julie draws or paints or prints pictures for the blog, and I write the words.
About a year ago Julie and I bought an astonishing place on 29 acres just above the Grand Canyon Track in the Blue Mountains. We rent out our two ironstone cabins to people who want to stay here in Blackheath to walk, create and retreat. Check out the cabins at the Rough Track Cabins website.
Stop and think for a sec – which are the books that made you who you are? The Bookstack Project is what happens when people bring their most treasured books – the things they have read that have most shaped their values, their characters, their lives – to a designated place where they stack them, to become part of a biggish art installation which will morph into a community project. It’s fun and a little bit amazing, and I want to do it more often with anyone who’s interested.
If you fancy a chat about any of these other projects, please get in touch.
