I was a Property Analyst at the time, working for a team of commercial agents selling some pretty massive CBD buildings. I found myself getting more excited about the property brochures than I was about the sales and dollar signs. It was one of those moments where I thought to myself “Hey, I think I like graphic design?” I quit my job and started studying a few months later.
Having just finished my 3rd semester of an Advanced Diploma with one final semester to go, I get a call for a temp job. I had three weeks holiday before going back to college and they had a three week contract. Perfect! I took the gig. One job turned into two jobs which turned into three jobs and I never went back to college. I figured I already had a diploma… I think it turned out to be the right decision.
Developing James Street’s RESORT 2016 identity. It was a dream. I worked with an amazing team of Creative Directors from The FS Group which made it even more memorable.

I’m on the hunt for a Junior Design role in Sydney. In the meantime I’ll continue freelancing and enjoying the perks of self-employment i.e. lots of coffee catch ups and the occasional weekday surf :)
