SIMONE MUNDY

IMG_3721

Simone loves all things kitsch and quirky, especially her hometown. Just like Adelaide, she has a dark sense of humour, a big heart and loves the arts. After years warping creative minds as a teacher, freelancing as a designer and managing events, nowadays Simone is enjoying her family life. She’s the wife of DJ Stephen King and mother to a pre-school son and feisty twin girls. In between her quest to find the perfect Bahn Mi and master building cubby houses she can also be found writing, designing and imagineering for Backseat of the Bus Creative and King Louis Kustoms. Where does she find the time? While all signs may point to illegal stimulants – it’s just a healthy case of YOLO!
