GET TO KNOW PETA

I'm a multi-passionate business owner. Studio P is one of my loves.

FAVOURITE FOOD?

How could anyone answer that living in Melbourne? Greek, Thai, Italian, Mexican, Japanese - Give me it all!

WHAT'S ON YOUR PLAYLIST?

Music is an integral part of my day! I actually have a pretty eclectic taste but you'll find me most listing to artists like SZA, Drake, Pop Smoke, Jhene Aiko. 

FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION?

Greece. Hands Down.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING?

It's a bit of a blurred line for me... I don't look at my days as either work or leisure; I kind of just do life... When I'm not behind the camera or computer however I love going out for dinner with friends, spending time with family (I have 13 nephews and nieces!!), catching a film or having a boogie on the dance floor!

FUN FACT.
