Hi there! My name is Matilda Grace, I just turned 25 y/o and I live in Sydney, Australia. I am a freelance writer, producer, director, videographer and media all-rounder.

I grew up in a small town in the Hunter Valley, 3 hours north of Sydney. But ever since I was 14 y/o I was planning my escape. So in 2010, after completely my HSC I moved to London where I lived and backpacked through Europe.

After returning home, I still felt unsettled so I saved again and when I was 21 y/o I moved to Whistler, Canada and travelled America.

For the past 3 years I have been quite settled in one of my favourite cities in the world, Newcastle, which is located 2.5 hours north of Sydney and has an emerging art scene like no other.

I completed my Bachelor of Communication in 2015 and the week following my last assignment I moved to Sydney to pursue work opportunities.

I currently work as an assistant in post production on some of Australia’s most creative films and television programs.

I make weird noises around dogs
I love to eat pizza
Netflix is my new obsession
I love all things artsy and crafty
Peter Pan is my favourite Disney movie
I will never say no to wine
I’m addicted to coffee
I have an addiction to quilt covers
I love to sleep in
I am a recovering travel-junkie (aka too poor to travel, at the moment)
And, my favourite colour is red

Please follow my adventures as I tackle my 20’s, the big city, work and dating.
