I've been involved in the Australian speculative fiction scene since 2001, attending my first convention in 2002. I'm a book geek and a Doctor Who nerd, volunteer for way too much stuff including being on the Natcon 50 organising committee, several years of working with the Andromeda Spaceways crew, helping run the ASif! reviews website for a few years, and judging or acting as judging co-ordinator for the Aurealis Awards for several years.

I have been an active member of the Perth SF community since moving here in 1998, originally through university clubs, and started attending conventions in 2001. Since then I've been on multiple committees for Genghiscon and Swancon in various positions. I helped to implement the accessibility protocols for Swancon and have a real desire to assist people with mobility issues to be included equally in all events. I hope to be able to meet with more people from around Australia and to see how other conventions manage their accessibility issues.
