Everyone has a story. Take me, for instance…


Working in Japan and in Mali

I was born in a small town in Far North Queensland, studied in a larger town in North Queensland, worked in a capital city in South East Queensland, then travelled through thirty countries operating my own multimedia production business. At different stages of my life and in different regions of the world, I’ve encountered moments where I’ve had to overcome the odds, where my skills to survive were tested and where¬†simple revelations and opportunities caused me to choose different paths in life, and in each one of these moments there is a story to be told.

North Queenslander’s have a unique sense of fashion. Business people wear short sleeves and knee-length pants and everyone everywhere wears thongs (also known as pluggers). City folk just don’t get it but we love what we wear. I would like to do a story on this topic and call it, ‘Down to my thongs’.

An addition/alteration to Stephen’s theme of why Nth Qld’s are/feel they are different is that we are left behind/are backward, but why we are glad to be and avoid a lot of the hang ups and problems big city folk down south tend to live with, thinking they are far better off.
