I was born and raised in Melbourne Australia.

My employment has predominantly been in the higher education sector. I was employed at Kangan Batman TAFE where I worked in various roles including Adminsitrative Assistant and Project Coordinator. I have also worked as a translator and interpreter through agencies based in Melbourne.
