I primarily take care of all the back office administration, finances and I also arrange all the transport. I have studied accounting and finance at UNSW and previously worked at Blue Mountains City Council. I am always here to take your call, please make your bookings at least the day before. Alternatively, I may respond to your email, or send you the Black-Mail. Just know I am typically always around, unless I’m hiding in my cave, because there are plenty of people and you are all too loud.
I love reading, dabble in writing and have a particular fondness for frogs. Those who have seen my desk can attest, if they can see my poor frogs at all, when they get buried under the weight of bureaucratic mess.
