I'm a freelance writer, currently alternating between two homes; one in Sydney's Inner West and the other in South Sydney.
I write predominantly because I enjoy it, and the passion portrayed in my writing is an expression of this.

Haircuts. They're generally not the fondest childhood memories. However, my memories of visiting the hairdresser as a child are entirely positive.
I was so little then that my hairdresser, Grant, would place two big yellow pages books on the seat to elevate me to an appropriate hair-cutting level. I still remember his words as he trimmed my healthy, dark hair to a short, neat bob: "You look like a china doll."
More than 15 years have passed and I'm proud to still call Grant my hairdresser. He now has his own salon on Jubilee Avenue in Carlton called "Ballyhoo." Grant is an extremely talented hairdresser with many years of experience. He fully devotes himself to his clients, treating every one as a VIP. Grant steers clear of overbooking, in order to throw all his attention onto each client individually. Conversations flow naturally out of genuine interest and care. He produces results of the very highest quality, and seeks to make the experience of every client comfortable and completely satisfied. Each time I depart the salon, I do so feeling a million dollars.
The new salon is comfortable, elegant, quirky and inviting. The arty decore, with pieces carefully selected from all around the world, is very aesthetically pleasing. The products used are also of the highest quality, as well as environmentally friendly, and the companies actively support the mentally handicapped.
