Welcome to Birseland Media

FreedasmallAs you will see we’ve split the sections up into some of the different parts of my life as I know it. My trusty advisors tell me that it’s too complicated to try to explain the world in which I wander, so I’ve settled on two main parts – media and music. That’s complicated enough for most people – but I’ll maybe introduce some of the other parts in due course.

Best wishes

Frieda Morrison.
