WHAT LINKEDIN HAS TO SAY ABOUT IT ALL
“I am a brand and communications specialist with a social impact background. I specialise in using conscious communication to build strong communities and create social change.
With inclusivity, impact, and resonance being a core focus of my work, I help brands tell meaningful stories. I have been involved in the design and execution of national and global campaigns for 10+ years, across the environmental, intergovernmental, and pop-culture arenas.
I led Greenpeace’s work in the Pacific region for four years, worked for Southern Cross Austereo in integrated marketing campaigns, and was a marketing business coach for SMEs in the Pacific as part of the the Australian-aided ‘Fiji Enterprise Engine’. I currently manage the communications team at Pacific Trade Invest Australia, the Pacific region’s leading trade and investment promotion agency.
In 2020 I founded Little Mountains, a resource hub, dedicated to conscious brands looking to use their communications to contribute to a better world.”

Hi Matisse, Just spent the day at girls GPS working on the shot and was thinking of you and Millie and the times you both were competing – whats happening these days
How are you??? It has been a long time. I am great! Living in Sydney. Millie is good also-she’s still in Brisbane- she’s a Gym Manager now. Still sporty haha. How are the dogs?? 🙂
Hi Matisse, We are still showing the dogs – off to Melbourne in November for the National Dachshund Show – we won t in Brissie in 2009. Havent been to aths for over twelve months. Joan fell and broke her hip three years a ago and had to have hip replacement which has restricted her a bit. Now that we are in the “70’s” we have had to slow down a bit.
What are you doing with youself in Sydney, still modelling? I have listened to your songs and read your writings – looks like journalism has paid off for you.
Look after yourself
