I was born and raised in Samoa, a little island in the South Pacific, and spent most of my spare time climbing trees and swimming or snorkelling the beautiful reefs surrounding my home. I am currently living in Australia. One of my recent projects is an audio adventure play for children, set in the Daintree Rainforest in Far North Queensland, Australia whereby my characters, four children embark on a camping trip, exploring a creek and encountering some of the weird and wonderful flora and fauna one finds in the rainforest, including fireflies, stinging trees and green tree frogs. The play called 'Daintree Kids find Mad Dog's Cave' is presently available at daintreekids.com.
I have extensive writing experience: a column in a newspaper that had 30,000 readership called 'Back to basics' whereby I focused on eco-environmental and sustainable practices; wrote a play for teens presented at The Clink Theatre FNQ; A children's play presently in post production; and am currently writing a novel. I have also edited manuscripts, children's stories, letters and essays locally and my particular talent with respect to editing is to remain true to the client's 'voice' and to develop and enhance the narrative based upon their real life abilities.

Australian Butterfly sanctuary
I know a lot about butterflies! The tour travels through the butterfly sanctuary, where I talk about egg collections, predators that affect butterflies, the way that butterflies see colour and shapes. We pass through the laboratory, where we discuss the various growth stages of caterpillars, how they transform into the chrysalis and then butterfly. We discuss butterfly scales, life spans, and points of interest such as the fact that some butterflies are highly toxic. The next stage covers butterfly courtship and also air battles between territorial males.

Daintree Kids Find Mad Dog's cave
This is an exciting project for me. A children's audio adventure set in the beautiful Daintree Rainforest. A great story for kids to listen to, and learn about the weird and wonderful flora and fauna of the rainforest, as well as, enjoy the antics of the main characters, Sam, Bec, Dylan and Camille, as they discover the hide-out of an escaped prisoner, get into difficulties in the rainforest and deepen their friendship through their experiences.

I have written extensively about eco/environmental sustainability and efforts by local businesses to minimise their impact on the environment.and reduce their carbon footprint. My favourite story was when a UN delegation came to my area and I covered their trip around the arboreal forests, and spoke to Dr David Brand, a leading proponent of sustainable forest farming practices.
