About Miss Von Trapp:
I am a trained singer with a good mezzo soprano range and am a professional actress with an extensive background in physical theatre, experimental cabaret and also TIE and community theatre.

I play the 'cello to around grade 5 level - and currently perform as Miss Von Trapp in a scary cabaret act - songs, performance poems and terrifying experimental psychocello accompaniment!

I spend the time when my husband is out gigging recording my own peculiar projects when the whimsy takes me: These are the more musical recordings of the songs which, when stripped down to one melody to accompany my singing, form part of my Miss Von Trapp cabaret stage act.

About actual me:
I am a wife and mother, a musician, a P.A, a coach, a clown, a writer, a performer, a singer, all-round chief cook and bottle washer, nice little earner, fly by the seat of my pants thirty-something year old loon. Refusing to let the child in me grow up yet trying hard to be a grown up anyway. I have had this diary for nearly ten years now and it holds many many of my trials and tribulations....

Blessed are the cracked.
For they let in the light.
