‘Funnyworks Oz’ was a feature article in this week’s City News publication, featuring a cover photo of yours truly! A great opportunity to promote the business and inform people about Funnyworks Oz and programs provided for the Canberra Community. Also some very accurate depictions of me including “maniacal expression of concentration”…too true! 🙂
