Describe your role at APRA AMCOS in one sentence:
I'm currently a Subject Matter Expert of Copyright & Publishing for the CLEF Project, which is the new database system APRA AMCOS will be using… but I can't wait to get back to working with Publishers in our Publisher Relations & Repertoire team!

What is your favourite song on your playlist and why?
Tropical Fuck Storm - A Laughing Death In Meatspace - Best song, album, live band etc…Everything about this band rocks my world.

What’s the last gig you went to?
Bench Press & Lazertits @ Workers Club / Andrew Tuttle @ Polyester Records (T’was a great 24 hours)

What’s the first gig you went to?
Culture Club @ Sydney Entertainment Centre in 1984.

My favourite music memory is…
I'd just turned 12 and my sister's friend Carmel was driving us to the airport to visit our cousins in Brisbane. The car stereo was pumping with some new kick-ass rock band, and it was rocking my little world… then the opening chords to Paradise City started & KABOOM! I’d found one of my favourite bands ever… I can still feel that moment 31 years later.

Final thought
Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid - Frank Zappa
