About Food, About Wine, About Knowledge
About a Boy & a Girl
About a Boy & a Girl
I have some pretty diverse interests in music, travel, art, the ocean, film, design, literature & it goes without saying organic food & wine, especially with friends & family.
Following a decade in premium wine retail along with a more than a few years in some of Brisbane’s best restaurants & bars I was definitely looking for a sea change. So opening a Wholefood Market, Café & Cellar of this size or scale with Jodi was for me a no brainer. I think I took about half a second to agree after we travelled to America & developed the idea.
About a Boy & a Girl is a collaboration of who we are, what we are supposed to do, what we were always destined to do…..That’s spreading the word about delicious healthy food, good wine & as such alongside our carefully selected extended range of organic, raw, vegan groceries & wholefoods.
Jodi’s infectious enthusiasm, extended knowledge of ingredients, love of life, backround & endless supply of compassion for others is truly inspiring. I make decisions based on what I’m feeling, whether it’s going to make me happy & our family happy. Working on About a Boy & a Girl with Jodi has reinforced how incredibly fortunate I am to have met her. She is what About a Boy & a Girl is about.
My childhood was pretty idyllic growing up on the beach with an abundance of fresh food & freedom. It was however spent struggling with my body, my immune system severely compromised. Finding my right path to health opened the world of organics, unrefined whole foods & led me down the road to where I am today. This journey mixed with my naturally inquisitive nature & thirst for learning means I have an extensive knowledge of ingredients, how to use them & their nutritional benefits, but saying that I am still discovering & learning about new ingredients everyday.
What I’m passionate about….. delicious food, preventative health, natural medicine, the people I love & my community.
What I love.….eating, drinking beautiful wine, laughing, the beach, traveling, spending time with people I love & dancing.
Steve… so you probably have worked out by now that I am not alone in this adventure. Steve & I found each later in life & the premise behind About a Boy & a Girl is the coming together of our skills, knowledge & passions, it is about us, our story & what we embrace. Steve is an incredibly compassionate, intelligent, fun & creative person & there is no one else more perfect to continue my journey with. Blessed I am!
