I'm an Australian animator from Melbourne living and working in Halifax, Canada.

Currently Animation Supervisor for Copernicus Studio Inc., I amuse myself by terrifying the locals with ukulele fuelled spontaneous sing-alongs and using snow as shaving equipment.

A taste of down under (NOT LIKE THAT!)

Heya everyone,
So I've recently discovered something. It's not the big differences that bug you when you move somewhere new. It's the little ones.

For example, Halifax doesn't seem to sell sausage rolls. Further than that, they don't seem to have savoury pastries of any kind. I never realised how much I craved savoury pastry.

So I decided to make a whole heap of sausage rolls!

They were sooo yummy.
I'd forgotten how awesome it is to have an oven. Back in my apartment in St Kilda I didn't have an oven. But the hostel I'm staying in here in Halifax does and it's HUGE! I almost didn't get them all done before midnight when the kitchen closes, but I totally did.
I took a whole heap of them to work too. Needed to ...educate? Canadian animators on the deliciousness of meat and pastry.

It all reminded me of growing up back home. Not necessarily what I was making, but the quantity.
So many Saturdays and Sundays of making huge quadruple batches of biscuits or  slices or bolognese and then freezing the lot of it for school lunches.
Ahhhh... good times.
Less baking and more sketching soon.
But then more baking again.
...and possibly a song.

Hope everyone's having a great day,

  1. Woah, you're at Copernicus now of all places? They do some amazing stuff (so of course you'll fit right in).

    Man, I'm really sorry I didn't see you before you left for the big C A of NADA. Still, I have a feeling we'll cross paths again in the future.
    Hope you're settling in ok. Every time I eat a savoury pastry now I'll think of you.
