I am Carlie Wacker – a woman that loves a microphone in one hand a glass of French bubbles in the other and a fabulous outfit.
I spent my youth planning a career in Hollywood by immersing myself in the performing arts (and forcing neighbourhood kids to participate in grand performances for the parents on weekends and school holidays). I travelled to the USA as a teenager to perform Off Broadway, at Disneyland and various high schools. The need to be onstage has been in my blood since birth.
While breaking into the world of Australian commercial television appearing on soapies, dramas and in commercials I found myself at a radio station in Melbourne where I fell in love with the wireless! My radio addiction soon took me around the country where I have had the pleasure of working in some great places and meeting some extraordinary people.
My diverse career in media and entertainment has included radio, television, public relations and event management. I have managed a children's talent agency and taught modeling and deportment workshops. I am proud to have written the blueprint for the integration and employment for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people into the commercial radio industry in 2008. I have also been a guest lecturer at AFTRS.
In 2012 I moved to Noosa where I am living my best life with my boat loving husband Mark and big fur kids Harry and Brax (yep, Home and Away reference).
In 2020 I began curating a collection of handcrafted and new jewellery under World Of Wacker Collective and in 2022, Wacker Clothing Company was founded.
Grab a glass of bubbles and settle in to see what's next with Wacker!
