I’m a freelancer.
I like writing.
I love speaking.
And I love working for clients.
I was, and still am, an employee of my own company, and it is my life’s passion.
I do freelance writing because I enjoy it.
And the reason I write?
I love being able to tell stories that matter to people.
So when I first moved to Australia, I thought, “Why not?
It’s where I’m from and I want to share my experience of being there.”
But when I got to the city of Hobart, I was pleasantly surprised to see how much I liked it.
Hobart is a city of adventure, and people’s passions can easily intersect.
I didn’t even know what I wanted to do with my life.
I thought that if I were a writer, I’d be working in a restaurant or a coffee shop, but I soon realised that what I really wanted to be doing was working in the entertainment industry.
I loved doing stand-up, acting, music, and I enjoyed meeting new people.
I had been an actor in the late 80s and early 90s and loved doing comedy and acting, but it was my first time working as a writer.
When I finally got the chance to go to Hobart to meet some of the leading people there, I knew I wanted something different.
It’s been a wonderful three years, but when it comes to writing, I still haven’t figured out what I want it to be.
So, as an author, I don’t think I know what to write about.
So what are my main reasons for writing?
What can I share about myself and my life that other people can relate to?
I have no idea.
My favourite thing about Hobart?
Hobart’s art, music and entertainment scene are diverse.
It is full of people who are passionate about their craft.
And Hobart has something special about it.
It was my home, but the first few years of my life were spent in Hobart.
In 2012, I moved from Melbourne to Hobassee, Florida, to be closer to family and friends.
My first year in Hobasas, I felt like a completely different person.
The city had been changed.
I became a bit more independent, but still wanted to live the same life.
It wasn’t easy, but at the end of the day, it was worth it.
I enjoyed living in Hobaspes’ art-filled culture, where everyone knows everyone and has the right to know you.
In Hobasis’ diverse environment, I found that I could learn from everyone, even the odd jerk, and find a place in the community that felt right for me.
Hobaspess’ music scene, which includes a huge array of artists from across Australia, is still in its infancy.
There’s a lot of room for growth.
Hobasstans music scene is so young, and there’s no clear blueprint for the future.
I’m not sure what the next five years will bring, but right now, I’m happy with what I’m doing.
My life in Hobaskis is amazing, and now I’m grateful to be here.
But I still don’t know what the future holds for me, and if there’s anything I can share with other people, it’s just this: I love writing.
If you do, and you’re passionate about it, and want to make it your life, then I hope that Hobasbes future is bright.
I know I am.
I think I’m just going to continue to write, and hope that I meet some amazing people, and maybe one day write about my life in a different way.
I’ll try to keep writing about Hobaspens’ culture and people, in Hobasses words.
It will be exciting to see what happens next.
