“Uncanny Annie is eccentric, opinionated, but most importantly… she’s never boring!”
Writing on her page since mid 2015, Annie quickly gained a fan base for readers that appreciated humour, honesty, and not conforming to the norm.
Annie is unashamedly herself as seen at the AFL Brownlow Medal 2016. She has had many unique life experiences, which makes Annie often stand out from the crowd. Nevertheless, Annie prides herself on being a “people person.”
Additionally, Annie uses her platform to highlight the issues she is most passionate about including (but not limited to) the experience of premature birth and twins, aboriginal rights, gender equality, LGBTQI rights, environmentalism, animal rights and life following the passing of a loved one.
Annie is the co-host of the podcast We Want To Be Better which debuted at #1 in the Australian iTunes charts for Comedy and the “All Podcasts” category, within the first week of going live!
It quickly amassed a strong fan base and was picked up by Nova Entertainment. You can find We Want To Be Better in all the usual podcast ways.
Annie has also been a guest on other podcast shows including “The Outer Sanctum Podcast” on the ABC Network, and guest spotted as co-host on “ThisGlorious Mess” on the MamaMia Network.
Annie has studied Advance Radio Training at The Radio Training Institute in Melbourne. She was part of the Breakfast Show for the pop-up radio station RTI FM. She is ambitious to follow a career in radio.
Annie regularly talks on JOY 94.9 (JOY FM), Melbourne’s LGBTQIA+ Radio Station. Her favourite shows being Chicks Talking Footy and as an ally on Trans POV with her good friend and well known trans activist, Michelle Sheppard.
Annie has also been sought after for interviews on radio stations such as 774 ABC, ABC Radio National, Melbourne’s KIIS FM and BBC Radio.
Annie’s distinctive writing ability, combined with her unique opinion has been sought after by various news and entertainment outlets.
Uncanny Annie has appeared numerous times on television. She’s been on programs such as Sunrise on Channel 7, the AFL broadcast on Channel 7, the Los Angeles based program The Boris and Nicole show (via Skype) and The Morning Show (which you should definitely check out if you want to see how easily a segment can be derailed by children!)
One of Annie’s greatest appeals to the people that follow her is that she is outspoken, and has always “walked the talk.”
Annie is a strong LGTBQI+ ally. Growing up in a rural town, she knew more need to be done for the LGBTQI+ rural community and their mental health. Annie believes strongly in “nothing about us without us”, so teamed up with the organisation Gay? That’s OK! to create a Football Pride game in her old home town of Hamilton, to address the issues facing the local LGBTQI+. Two of the strongest VFL Women’s teams (Melbourne University and Darebin Falcons) played on the day. The day was a huge success and only a few weeks later, Trans teen, Mei Flavel, credited the day as being one of the reasons she was able to “come out” and live her life authentically.
Annie was also invited by Australian Marriage Equality to attend their Melbourne press conferences to encourage Australians to “vote yes.”
Annie was also the 2017 Pram Jam Ambassador, which to raises awareness and funds for research into helping babies born premature, and preventingstillbirth. Annie and her prematurely born twins (aged 4), rode their bikes the distance between their home and the hospital (28km) for the organisation. The campaign was a huge success raising over $100, 000, and Annie and her daughters raised nearly $10,000.
Annie frequently posts on social media about the things she cares about. This is at the very core of the work she does. Currently Annie is particularly passionate about the success of the AFLW (the new Australian Women’s Football League), animal welfare (adopting animals, veganism) and being a good ally to the Aboriginal community.
