Get to know Rebecca King
Travel, mid-century modern design, puppy dogs, Triple J, cooking plant-based food and listening to podcasts in the shower.
Commercial TV, the toilets at Falls Festival, chemicals, touching polystyrene and egos.
Most annoying habit
"Forgetting" to do the dishes at work. I will get round to it one day....
70s disco music (hello John Travolta!)
Favourite Instagram account
@discovertasmania - yep, no surprise here.
What inspires you?
People giving up their 9-5 jobs to chase their entrepreneurial dreams. Total legends.
Vitriol by Bluejuice for public speaking
+ Walking in a Straight Line by Silverchair for coping with life :)
(Both clearly from Triple J, not 70s disco!)
And now for the serious bit.....
