My name is Julia and I am 33.

I live in Bathurst, Australia, with my cat Fizzgig, aka The Wuz, my fiance, B, our corgi, Delilah and our beagle, Snoopy. Officially The Wuz is an Exotic Shorthair, but there’s actually some possum and a bit of seal in the mix too. She’s one of the funniest people I know. B is just regular human. Delilah is a cute-faced heart assassin. Snoopy is a heart-breaker and a darling.

I work in the media industry in no capacity you would have ever heard about.

I wear a lot of black, for no other reason than I dig it.

I love photography, looking at it, buying it, doing it. Currently I shoot with a Canon EOS 500D and it’s love.

I am obsessed with books and my favourite authors include: Dr Hunter S Thompson, The Hitch, Margaret Atwood, Lily Brett, Martin Amis, Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, Truman Capote and Helen Garner. If I could list two books that changed my life, they would be The Treatment and The Cure by Peter Kocan and The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood. Once upon a time, I wrote a thesis on feminist science fiction. I count it as one of the best years of my life. Ok, it took me over a year, so sue me.

Musically I worship at the altars of the Melvins, PJ Harvey, Why? and a little hippity hop group called Atmosphere.

The two most awe-inspiring gigs I’ve been to were Laurie Anderson in 2010 and Swans in 2011.

I am intensely attracted to the absurd and I have a nephew named Vincent and three nieces, Cordelia, Lexi and Nora, who I intend to teach all of this to.

If you would like to contact me, you can do so the old fashioned way: email.
