Our Team

Pieta Sharpe

Hi there, I’m Pieta. I’m the boss lady here at Perth Happenings.

I’m a Mum to two boys and I strive for that work/life balance.

I love getting out into the community and asking all the questions – who, what, when, where, why and how. We have been growing Perth Happenings to support the small local businesses and events that perhaps can’t afford large scale exposure and this is my passion.

I look to find the most interesting, insightful, fun, local, tastiest parts of Perth to showcase and I love that my dream of Perth Happenings is now growing and becoming something awesome.

I have an amazing team and look forward to introducing them to you – Thanks for supporting us 😀

Cassie Hunter

I’m Cassie, a 23-year-old dog mum to one super-naughty jack Russell pup and a Perth girl through and through. One of my favourite places on earth is the beach, having never lived more than a 5-minute drive away!

I have a degree in event management, public relations and tourism and hospitality from Curtin University. My average week consists of planning killer events ranging from charity balls to product launches at the fabulous Known Associates Events. When I’ve got some downtime on my hands you’ll find me lazing around binging the hottest new thang on Netflix or totally engrossed in whatever paperback thriller I can get my hands on.

I absolutely live and breathe events and love getting the latest scoop on what’s happening on Perth. As an event manager myself, I can tell you there’s always something exciting going on in our city!

Jo Newman 

Hello!  I’m a colour-loving, coffee-drinking, photo-taking, op-shop wearing mum who lives by the mantas of “life is for living” and “normal is boring”.

I love positivity, purpose and passion: particularly in people, events and causes.  Anything quirky or creative makes my heart beat, and I firmly believe the only sin is mediocrity.

When I am not writing, I am taking photos, reading quotes or singing (badly). I love telling stories as much as listening to them.   I’m a marketing communications manager, and blogging about Perth is a joy.

If you see me out and about, be sure to say hello!  Chatting is also something else I like to do!

Katie Daniels

My name is Katie. I have lived most of my life in Perth, and always in the Northern Suburbs. I have two primary school aged children, a husband and an energetic dog (kelpie x dingo – can you get any more Aussie than that??).

My passion is travel, and I love to take my family on new adventures all over the world! I share some of these photos on my Instagram account @thedanielsfamilytravels . As I spend so much of my time exploring new places overseas, and within Australia, it is with some authority that I can say that Perth is really one of the best cities in the world! I believe there is no better place for us to live and raise our beautiful girls.

We are so lucky to live where we do! I look forward to sharing with you some of the fun places that we visit in our local area in the Northern Suburbs of Perth.

Liam Crighton

Hey everyone! I’m Liam.

Originally from Sydney, but have now spent the last 6 years living in gorgeous WA.

I am currently studying a Bachelor of marketing, advertising & public relations at Edith Cowan University. When I’m not buried in books, I work between two Perth based venues, as a bar manager and events coordinator.

When I’m not working, I am a part time travel addict! On the weekends you will find me in the city,  discovering hidden cocktail bars, trying new restaurants and partying the night away!


Sasha Spiers

Hi there! My name’s Sasha and I’m a proud dog mum to a miniature poodle named Abbey (she’s fabulous).

Born and raised in the tropics of South East Asia, I’ve since planted my feet in Perth and I can’t believe how much this beautiful city has grown!

You’ll find me devouring delicious morsels at cute cafes, indulging in trashy reality tv shows, obsessing over health or #girlboss related reading material, checking out Perth’s latest fitness studio or at a local bar, drink in hand.
