Joy Minter

After a twelve month working holiday that took her from Sydney to Perth, Joy moved to Australia from Canada. She first lived in Canberra, where she studied literature and sociology at ANU. After graduating she moved to Sydney and enrolled at Macquarie University to complete an honours year in Australian literature (with some theatre studies of course) and graduated in 2001. She worked in finance and the arts before establishing the arts and entertainment website thebuzzfromsydney, which reviews and promotes live performance and exhibition in Sydney. She has been a member of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) since July 2013. She loves the vibrant art scene in Sydney, and reporting on local exhibitions and theatre.
