Dumbo Feather team

Meet the crew—and let us know how we can help you!

Berry Liberman

Berry is Editor and Publisher of Dumbo Feather.

Berry Liberman, Dumbo Feather’s publisher and editor, drives our passion and purpose. While she’s not immersed in the heady scent of old fashioned flowers, she’s the Creative Director of Small Giants, the Publisher of Dumbo Feather and a mum to the three cutest kids in the world.

Nathan Scolaro

Nathan is the Assistant Editor at Dumbo Feather

Nathan enjoys getting elbow-deep in sentences, pressing and pricking them like a Chinese doctor until the blood is flowing just right. He hails from Western Australia, where he first experienced the joy of putting together a magazine, and now indulges his love of thoughtful, life-giving storytelling by helping bring Dumbo Feather to life once a quarter. Email him your pitches: nathan@dumbofeather.com.

Amandine Thomas

Amandine is Dumbo Feather’s Art Director

Amandine is a French illustrator and graphic designer, who travelled her way to Australia a few years ago and somehow never made it back. When not strapped to a backpack, she is busy designing the next issue of Dumbo Feather. The rest of the time she writes and illustrates books for little human beings—and contributes to a number of European and Australian publications.

Jane Nethercote

Jane is Dumbo Feather’s Head of Digital

Jane has LOVED Dumbo Feather since she spotted it in the magazine racks at Borders. Most of the Dumbo Feather team would be too young to understand this reference. She’s worked in online publishing for a wee while at places like Crikey, Lonely Planet and World Vision. Send her a pitch: jane@dumbofeather.com.

Lizzie Marton

Lizzie is Dumbo Feather’s Digital Editor

Lizzie loves all things digital, and gets a buzz out of running our social media channels. She first fell in love with storytelling and journalism when reading Pamela Bone’s columns as a teenager, and hasn’t been able to keep herself from writing ever since. When not absorbed in making Dumbo Feather’s site beautiful, you will most likely find her listening to, talking about and editing podcasts.

Dianne Cotter

Dianne is Dumbo Feather’s Advertising and Partnerships Manager.

Dianne’s media experience started at Style Counsel during Uni. Since then, Dianne has worked with globally significant brands including Gourmet Traveller, MTV, Nickelodeon and The Difference. Dianne’s passion for creating meaning for brands is evident in her approach to sales and marketing—so give her a buzz to discuss how you can get involved with Dumbo Feather. Email Di on dianne@dumbofeather.com.au.

Tegan Sullivan

Tegan is Dumbo Feather’s Office Manager

Tegan is a Dumbo Feather reader from way back with a love for spreadsheets and to-do lists. She looks after our subscribers and keeps the stationery cupboard well-stocked. She also writes, dabbles in photography and surrounds herself with cats. Contact her on hello@dumbofeather.com.

Madeline Lucas

Madeline is Dumbo Feather’s Community Manager

Madeline looks after Dumbo Feather events, which means she has the best job of all! Organising launch parties, Conversation Series, partnered events and even setting us up in a caravan or two so we can chat to people in there. She also looks after our special projects, like the storytelling program we run with Parkville Youth Justice Precinct. When Madeline is not doing that, she looks after our independent retailers. Email her on madeline@dumbofeather.com.

Mele-Ane Havea

Mele-Ane is Dumbo Feather’s General Manager

Mele-Ane has a varied background, from corporate law to community and human rights law, with an Oxford MBA thrown in for good measure. At business school and the Skoll Centre for Social entrepreneurship, Mele-Ane became enamoured by the idea of social and responsible business, and the power of storytelling. When not rallying the troops at Dumbo Feather, she works on a number of projects that promote the idea of business as force for good, in particular with the B corporation movement.
