Byron Shire Lifestyle

I love living and working in Byron Bay for it’s pristine natural surf beaches, rivers and forests, an abundance of creativity and community. Byron is a small collection of friendly towns with cafes, culture, arts, dance, healing, music and fresh food farmers markets. I am a volunteer for several local community organizations and have a passion for a thriving local coastal lifestyle and sustainable economy.
