I’m Carlie Wacker – a woman that loves a microphone in one hand a glass of French bubbles in the other.
I spent my youth planning a career in Hollywood by immersing myself in the performing arts (and forcing neighbourhood kids to participate in grand performances for the parents on weekends and school holidays). I travelled to the USA as a teenager to perform Off Broadway, at Disneyland and various high schools. The need to be onstage has been in my blood since birth.
While breaking into the world of Australian commercial television appearing on soapies, dramas and in commercials I found myself at a radio station in Melbourne where I fell in love with the wireless! My radio addiction soon took me around the country where I have had the pleasure of working in some great places and met some extraordinary people.
I ended up in Brisbane where I met my husband Mark in 2005 – a Harley Davidson, drag racing, waterskiing, jetskiing, fisherman with 3 great kids who I am proud to call my step children (Chris 33, Jesse 30 and Kimberley 27). I became a step mum of 3 teenagers who are now all very successful humans who I love to hang out with. I am a fur Mum of two big boy dogs named Harry and Brax (yep, Home and Away reference).
In 2012 we moved to Noosa where I continue to work as a radio announcer and compere. I also picked up a gig as the Fashion Editor of a local magazine which is a dream come true. I can combine my love of fashion, talking and writing and live the dream baby!
I started my blog to share my love of all things local and luxe. So grab a glass of bubbles and check out the World Of Wacker!
