INSPIRING kids to read & Be healthy
Author ~ Health Educator ~ Sound Designer ~ Illustrator
As a film sound designer, I helped create some classic films including Shine, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet and Babe. Sound plays an important role in The Hills Kids too! While writing, words are used to paint atmospheres in the reader’s imagination. The rhythms and sounds of words add dynamics to the story, whether it be for laughter, pace or increased drama. As a health educator, writing also provides opportunities for exploring the role of food, community, animals and the environment in shaping children’s lives.
