Rachel is a fairly new Melbourne fan who leapt in feet first after her first convention in 2003. She has since been an active Continuum Foundation and committee member (co-chairing Continuum 5: Galaxies by Gaslight in 2009) and attended many conventions across Australia, but has never been to Western Australia or the infamous Swancon! Rachel brings creativity in the form of crafts, video mash-ups and conversation to conventions and writes in very short bursts, usually on twitter: @cochineal. While no dance floor is safe when she is in the room, the zombie cat is only made of papier-mache.
Nominators: Danny Oz; Emilly McLeay; Alisa Krasnostein.
