Home' Snap Shot Magazine : February 2012 Contents ata
The eclectic mix of people in the Southern
Highlands never ceases to amaze.
There are those who hail from the more
traditional career paths such as doctors, nurses,
teachers and tradespeople.
But there are many more people who have
made, and continue to make, their livelihood
through the less traditional career paths.
It is common knowledge that entertainers
and sports people have long found the
Highlands a great place to settle, but many
other quiet achievers also go about their
business with great success in our community.
The cover story in this month's
Snapshot magazine touches on the
career of one such quiet achiever.
Piano technician Ron Craig is the last person
in Australia to have completed a five year tuner
and repairer's apprenticeship in the late 1960s.
He has spent more than four decades
repairing, restoring and tuning pianos working
on some of the finest instruments in the country.
He spent four years overseeing the maintenance
and care of pianos at the Sydney Opera House
and has more recently been invited to join an
elite group of international technicians who
tune pianos in top venues.
The inside story looks at the work of
Chrissy Birdsall who has created a selection of
skin care products in her Purestuf range, using
all natural ingredients.
Other stories in this month's magazine look
at the achievements of former Oxley College
student, Ryan Cush, who is finding success in
engineering, the latest information of the
inaugural Dan Murphy Highlands Food and
Wine Festival and regular features including
Highlands property, What's on, Social scene and
Happy Valentine's Day to all and
enjoy the read,
