The Weekend Australian - Review - - Profile -

Ca­reer high­light: See­ing the re­de­vel­oped ( Queens­land) State Li­brary come to life ev­ery day in ways that we hoped it would and in so many other ways that we could never have imag­ined. Ca­reer low­light: I pre­fer to fo­cus on the pos­i­tives . . . there is a les­son to be learned from ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. Favourite hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion: In­dia: the colour, the chaos, the di­ver­sity, the food, the peo­ple and the won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ences. But it could also be au­tumn in Granada at the Al­ham­bra, or Viet­nam with its many haunt­ing mem­o­ries. Guilty plea­sure: Turk­ish de­light cheese­cake from Jo­ce­lyn’s Pro­vi­sions at New Farm, Bris­bane. Best ad­vice re­ceived: Give frank and fear­less ad­vice. Favourite book: Too many to se­lect just one . . . Voss , Sons and Lovers , The English Pa­tient , Pride and Prej­u­dice , The Widow and Her Hero , Car­pen­taria : old favourites and new.
