The poetry of Marino has been with me since I was a kid… the apparent remoteness and sense of adventure in a coastal playground.
Now returned I am pleased to be involved in the community. I am an architect and have a strong interest in urban planning, landscape, and cultural history. I swim and get to the beach at every opportunity.
Communication, environment, open space, sustainability and identifying with the many unique aspects of the Coastal Community and traditional place of the Kaurna people inspire me to give what I can to keeping that special poetry alive.
