Claire moved to the Gold Coast from Brisbane 12 years ago, so is almost considered a local. “I was born and raised in Brunswick Heads so I’ve only ever lived about a 100kms either side of the city,” she says. “The Jellurgal ‘Oceanview Track’ walk is my favourite place on the Coast. It’s a beautiful walk through such a special, spiritual place. Take in the amazing view, hopefully spot a whale or some dolphins and finish up with a dip in Talle Creek.” Claire has over 10 years’ experience working in an eclectic mix of events in a variety of industries including universities, not for profits, craft beer and hospitality. Claire has been at Placemakers Gold Coast for four years and has a passion for large scale, site specific work. Claire graduated from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Applied Theatre in 2006 and returned to complete her Master of Arts and Media in 2015.
