I'm a business consultant and content creator with a unique skill set. I can explain technology, build websites, fix the generator, and cook. I can sing notes above F.
My husband and I run events from our farm in the country; it's a fun, chaotic, and loving work-in-progress.
And I write. A lot.

    My newest project is The Antiques Geek, a website and resource for antiquers and small business. We're currently in pre-Alpha, still adding and testing functionality.

  • Small Business Consultant

    We are experts in small to medium business strategy and shoestring startups.

  • Antiques and vintage fairs

    We are proud to present a specially-created series of fairs with Australia’s top dealers showcasing the best in antiques, vintage and collectables.

    Our goal is to produce and promote the country's best antiques fairs in a manner that provides a top quality venue for dealers, and engenders public confidence. Our dealers are individually selected and each fair is described in terms of period and themes: fine art, antiques (100+ years old), collectables, modern design (20th Century onwards), retro and vintage.

    There are no reproductions allowed at our top tier antiques fairs, and at the more relaxed collectables fairs where contemporary and reproduction goods are allowed, they must be clearly labelled as such.

    Our fairs have been incredibly well received, and we review our results and feedback with a serious view to continual improvement.
