Eve Jeffery

Eve Jeffery Journalist, photographer, filmmaker, artivist, vocal coach… Eve Jeffery, aka the Tree Faerie, has been a writer and photographer since her teen years in Melbourne. Her background in theatre, dance, puppetry, television and probably one too many days as a vocalist in a rock band rehearsal room, have allowed her to view the entertainment industry from both sides. A well-spent youth as a little athlete, an A-Grade netballer, a one-eyed Collingwood supporter and fifth-form PE have added that pinch of sporting mongrel. Eve is also an artivist who has gathered a small armful of awards creating music videos, short films and a feature doco in the fight against the Coalmonster and the CSG Daemon as one half of Cloudcatcher Media. 2020's COVID-19 Pandemic saw Eve find herself with way too much spare time and she returned to teaching Vocal Coaching and Singing with both the Brunswick Valley School of Dance and as the founder of Byron Bay Singing. Eve has been a single mother to the ‘best kids on the planet’ since 1992 – she has raised an activist/midwife and a ballerina, in that order. She has lived on the north coast since 1995 and loves and adores being part of what she considers the unique and very special Echo Publications family to whom she has belonged for 18 years. She is also a grandmother to an Italian Greyhound…

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
