name and age of your child?
my baby’s name is blue valerie linwood, she’s just over 8 months old and full of curiosity.
what creative projects have been keeping you busy?
the last month has been a massive metamorphosis both spiritually and emotionally. navigating these times, I have become more in-tune with my masculine connection with emotion.
creatively, my partner @montanalower and i have been working on our new company; on the way, which is a social enterprise aiming to connect people living an alternative lifestyle and educate people on how the decisions they make in the consumer space can set the direction for the planet. part of that entails compiling brands that align with our values and building a directory to connect with people wanting to make a change.
2020 has been an unusual year for a lot of people – how are you staying positive and inspired? has there been much of a change in the way you work and live?
2020 has been a really challenging year – from the fires and confusion about where to donate money, to the first case of covid in australia. there has been a lot of uncertainty and anxiety inside everyone, which is really taxing on your energy.
when the lockdown in nsw began, our lease ended with no chance of extending, which was the plan…so our only option was to move into our un-finished, converted coaster bus. this wasn’t an easy move with plenty of freedom, it was a constant mental battle asking ourselves if we were doing the right thing – legally and ethically.
i have been staying positive by being surrounded by nature and taking the time to really connect with myself and family. I make an effort to stay up to date with current events, but I make sure my consciousness is not saturated by them.
there has been a big change in the way i work, but that goes back further than 2020. i was badly injured back in February 2019, so my work life has shifted quite dramatically since then. we used to live out in goonengerry, quite isolated and surrounded by nature, so that part of the way we live and work hasn’t changed.
