A very special Maker & Creator - Episode 19: This was our first time recording with three guests on the show, the core creatives behind @600bottlesofwine a new all-female Aussie made web/TV series. It has just premiered in Australia following success on screens in the UK & NZ. 600 Bottle Of Wine was produced off the back of a successful blog started by Grace Rouvray (@gracelaceface). She opened her heart on the blog and shared her dating woes. And people loved it. We watched the trailer and felt instantly connected and new we needed to meet the creators behind this series. Grace Rouvray, Bec Bignell (@biggybecca) and Ainslie Clouston (@ainslieclouston) take @msdarlinghurst and @jyesmith through the highs and lows of creating your own series. From selling your soul to scoring major contracts and the hustle in between. What an amazing night! #podcast#film#comedy#australia#ladyboss
Maker & Creator Ep 17: @msdarlinghurst and I speak to Armando Percuoco: the Italian godfather of the Australian food scene. His restaurant @buonricordosydney in Paddington, Sydney is a dining institution which has served everyone from A-List celebrities to notorious gangsters and the like for over 30 years. We chat to Armando about how the food scene has changed since 1972 when he first immigrated to Australia and how creativity can be expressed through food. #foodie#chef#restaurant#sydney#foodporn

2010. The real story is this was my favourite shirt and I miss it and I wish they still made it. Also thanks @msdarlinghurst for being awesome for 8 years. Its amazing what 8 years has done to me and left you the same. Jealous.

This week we have met two maker and creators already. Two bottles of red wine and I’m feeling super rough but inspired today. Big thanks to @ianrumsby who’s episode will be published in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned. #podcast#foodstagram#flatlay#cheese#wine
Episode 16: Millennials on film / @msdarlinghurst and @jyesmith smith talk to Eddie Foster who owns a film agency in Vancouver. Originally from Hong Kong and Sydney he’s certainly gifted when it comes to film, motion and telling beautiful stories. Eddie is only 21 years old and has already worked with some of the biggest brands in the world including North Face, Spyder, Hollister, Scott, Zeal optics and more. In this episode the conversation covers everything from our favourite films to the age old debate around generation gaps. Are millennials slow to enter the work force or are they spoilt with too many options? Is this just the same question Gen Y was asked a decade ago? #podcast#geny#millennials#culture
Episode 15 of Maker & Creator: @msdarlinghurst and I speak with @mrbrentwilson who is one of Sydney’s most successful menswear designers. He owns a flagship store in The Galeries and has been crowned GQ Designer Of The Year. He's even been on the cover of DNA magazine. Brent's story is certainly unique. In this episode he shares his journey from being an electrician to entering the fashion world thanks to a lucky break at Fashion Week many years ago. His perspective on the Australian fashion scene has changed over time and Brent's agile ability to adapt to this changing market is both interesting and inspiring.
Such a privilege to speak with such a down to earth bloke about what makes men handsome.

Sonixtrip (sonic trip - but everyone needed an X in the late 00’s) was my last foray into playing and producing in a alternative metal band and I fucking miss it more than anything but weeks after coming back to Old Sydney Town I got to see these two chums. I’d do it all again now and then. Not pictured is the most talented of all of us @jk_crystal_cities who is touring as a bass sex god somewhere in the world. If you ever want a copy of the EP, I’d be happy to share. #music#band#numetal#altrock#sydney#australia
Six months ago, I moved back to Australia. Some days it feels like I never left, other days it feels like a new adventure. Apart of that adventure has been my journey with @redenginescc @engineroomproductions and forging friendships with some very awesome people. Thanks for putting up with me, ya nerds. #creative#agency#work
Maker & Creator: Episode 15 //We had a special guest attend both events, Tom Brennan (@tombrennan189) the global Waterford Crystal (@waterfordcrystal) ambassador. Now I think I have a pretty cool job but Tom may have the best job in the world. He gets to travel around the world attending fancy dinners, charming crowds with his storytelling and talking about crystal. But he’s more than just hired help, his personal story is really intriguing. Welcome to the show Tom.
