MEET THE TEAM

BRITTANY LEE WALLER: OWNER & MANAGING EDITOR

Image: Daryl Kong

I like to think of myself as a storyteller, particularly once I’ve had a few drinks. I’ve spent 8 years as a journalist, editor, copywriter and travelling layabout. I’ve worked for Gourmet Traveller, Peats Ridge Music Festival, Drinks World Asia, Rare Birds, Coca Cola Amatil and Nine Network Australia. I’ve written for the likes of Elite Daily, Urban List, Sydney Morning Herald, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, among others. I have a strong inclination towards spontaneous tropical getaways because… young and free. I do not dance like nobody’s watching. My opinions are sometimes tequila’s.

KARLA DALY: COFFEE EDITOR

I’m a freelance writer based in Bondi, Sydney. My work has been featured on News.com, Mamamia, Boody and Meet the People. I also work with folks in the wellbeing and creative industry who need their blogs, websites or products primped up with fabulous prose. I love coffee, play, the ocean, avocados, books, music, sign-language, mojitos, road-tripping and writing with the truth (swear words included).

DARYL KONG: PHOTOGRAPHER

Daryl Kong is a Sydney based photographer who first developed his love for creating imagery while working in London as an advertising agency strategist. He specialises in commercial, food, portrait, and events photography. Daryl’s eye and incredible talent for framing people is what visually sets Meet The People apart.

CHARLIE LEHMANN: GUEST EDITOR – BARTENDER

Professional rambler, occasional tug boat driver and one third of the dudes behind Ramblin’ Rascal Tavern. Studied a Communications degree with a significant inclination for the political and the damned rights of the working man to be heard. If not rambling, sporadic thoughts can be found in booze dens around the city or shooting hoops as a favourite past time. Also has a beard and heavily tattooed so fits that certain criteria too.
