Michelle joined the QMusic team in February 2015 with a background in media relations, radio broadcasting and business administration. Originally from Sydney, she has worked everywhere from independent record stores, PR/publishing houses to co-running her own independent record label, Brisbane’s Coolin’ By Sound.
Cutting her teeth in publicity at Two Fish Out Of Water, she has worked on campaigns for The Waifs, Augie March, The Drones, The Jezabels and The Falls Music & Arts Festival. Following her heart to Brisbane in 2011, Michelle has been a Station Manager at 4ZZZ (where she was known as ‘Miki’ for close to four years) - managing the day-to-day running of the community radio station and its 200 volunteers.
Through her passion for increasing female participation in music, in 2016 she co-organised Australia's second Girls Rock! camp held in Brisbane. You can find her out and about at gigs and festivals watching her favourite bands (there are many) or at the weekly instores hosted by Brisbane's legendary Sonic Sherpa Records.
