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 am a huge fan of community spirit and kindness.

I created Perth Happenings to support the small local businesses and events that perhaps can’t afford large scale exposure and this is my passion. I want to bring our community together and be an exciting alternative to traditional media.

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.

Thanks for being a part!

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

Cassie Hunter

I’m Cassie, a 24-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!

Heather Jerrems

Hi, I’m Heather! I’ve lived in WA all my life, originally south of Perth, now living in the big smoke and I just love it!

I’m an events marketing professional by day and a theatre maker, visual artist, and SFX makeup artist by weekend which all keeps me very busy. A normal week for me sees me selling a bunch of tickets to some large scale events, painting up some faces, and then spending an abnormal amount of money on eating out around Perth!

I love good food, good wine, and good theatre and Perth definitely has some amazing spots to experience all three. The arts scene in Perth is growing so dramatically and it’s so incredible to be a part of!

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!


Rachel Yeo

Hey there, I’m Rachel – affectionately known by most as ‘that writer chick’!

As a lover of words, I’ve been writing my whole life and had the incredible opportunity to become a music and concert reviewer at the age of 16. Since then, my works as a copywriter and editor have encompassed everything from music festivals and the arts to lifestyle and property.

Although I was born and raised in Perth, I’ve lived abroad and can truly say that nowhere comes close to Perth as being one of the world’s most stunning cities. There’s always something to marvel at or explore in our beautiful hometown.

When I’m not writing, you’ll likely find me opshopping, on the hunt for the perfect chai latte or front row at your local gig. (Look, I do love a good boogie!)
