After thirty years in Australia, I have returned to my homeland of Canada. I have had a varied career, starting off modelling in my early twenties, then moved into hospitality and trained as a chef. After a short stint in this profession, I returned to school, and with a degree in Marketing, opened a Graphic Design Studio which I named cryercom.
New to the city of Vancouver, I wandered into Volume Studio one day to get my hair cut. I was sitting in the chair next to where Dean was chatting with his client. He was talking about this fundraiser called Brilliant! It sounded amazing, which it was! When my cut was finished, I went over and introduced myself and offered my services to volunteer for the next show.
