On the Couch with Steph Tisdell

Steph-Tisdell-photo-by-Monica-PronkWho is Steph Tisdell?
Some weirdo who talks too much and want to love everything / everyone.

What would you do differently from what you do now?
Nothing really. Part of being grateful, to me, is to focus on the present and be grateful for what I have and not fantasise about how different things could’ve been. It makes me really anxious and I begin to overanalyse.

Who inspires you and why?
My family. They’ve helped me through everything and supported me through every single step I’ve taken.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Put love into the world at every level I could.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Edinburgh; I love how much the city changes each season, and I love the feeling of history you feel when you walk around town.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Lake Samsonvale! It’s not really an attraction, it’s just a place I love in Brisbane. It’s not somewhere tourists go, but you often see koalas, kangaroos and the most beautiful sunsets.

What are you currently reading?
Nothing at the moment actually! I listen to podcasts these days!

What are you currently listening to?
My podcast with Tanya Hennessy – I Can’t Stop; and been enjoying some 90s throwback dance music!

Happiness is?
Being excited by nervousness and competition.

What does the future hold for you?
I hope it holds more acting and presenting roles! Those are my favourite.

Steph performs as part of the incredible line-up of acts in Club Cremorne at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) until 3 October 2020. For more information, visit: www.qpac.com.au for details.
