She won a penalty shoot-out against Brazil at the Rio Olympics and has her sights on the 2020 Olympics in Japan.
In between that, she’s playing full time for Canberra United, is launching her own fashion label and was nominated LBGT sportsperson of the year.
From a shoot at the High Court of Australia to the edge of a volcano in Tahiti, no day is ever the same for one of Canberra’s most prolific photographers.
And when he’s not capturing shots all over the world, he’s immersing himself in nature at his bushland home with his family.
I’ve lived in Canberra for almost 30 years. Many times, I’ve thought maybe I should move on to new pastures but so much keeps me here. All my family live here and I love spending time with them.
I’ve also had some great career highlights thanks to Canberra. I’ve been able to pursue my love of choreography and theatre…all thanks to the opportunities Canberra brings.
Ken’s love of technology and his ability to bring people together has seen him successfully transform a start-up company into a global force in the emerging field of eye-tracking technology.
With 140+ staff scattered around the world, Ken has ensured that the Seeing Machine headquarters remain in Canberra. Originally from Canada, he has lived in the ACT for more than 20 years and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
His furniture is made, sold and exhibited all over the world. And when he’s not doing business in Sydney and Melbourne, flying to Milan and New York several times a year, or lecturing at Canberra University, Tom can be seen at any one of the hip bars and cafes of Braddon.
From commandeering police sniffer dogs to uncover illicit drugs to now uncovering the “black gold nuggets” of nature, Jayson’s uncanny ability to connect with his dogs—many rescued from the pound—has led to his success as a truffle farmer.
His passion for the business, his wry sense of humour and the loveable animals that help him out, make his farm and world-class restaurant one of the most sought-after experience destinations in Australia.
I love walking down University Avenue at the ANU and experiencing the different seasons; being grateful for the shade in summer, seeing a whirl of leaves fall against a crisp and flawless autumn sky, wrapping a scarf more tightly about your neck and seeing frost gleaming in winter, and being hissed at by protective mother ducks as they herd their babies through bright green grass in spring. They add a beautiful backdrop to all of my memories.
