Moira de Swardt, freelance journalist for arts, culture (and health and ecology) fell in love with all things theatrical at five years of age when she made her stage debut dressed in a blue swimming costume, blue tights and a length of net curtaining as a wave, the sea-billow variety, in a school concert.
She has been making her musical musings, dance dialogues and theatrical thoughts public since February 1999 when she first acquired access to the internet.
In addition, Moira has been involved in first aid, civil preparedness, home nursing (home based care) and firefighting since the early eighties. She served in a mission hospital in Swaziland and has worked extensively in first aid and home based care instructing, HIV and AIDS counselling as well as served thousands of hours as a volunteer on ambulances and in hospitals.
An ordained clergy person, Christian, she pastors a small inner city non-denominational ministry and works actively with women’s ministries including the female relatives of prisoners.
