What was your first ever job?

Blockbuster – I was the Assistant Store Manager. It was great, I got to check out all the latest movies as soon as they came out.

 

What advice would you give your 18-year-old self?

Just keep doing what you're doing, you'll be fine! BUT a hot tip, save your money and buy an investment property because the prices are going to skyrocket. Also look in to becoming a stunt car driver just because it looks really fun!

 

Who is your favourite person/brand to follow on social media and why?

I have two – youfoodz and Running Bare. I LOVE all their delicious looking food posts from youfoodz and love checking out all the new activewear from Running Bare. Their posts are always bright and colourful and nice to see when scrolling through my Instagram feed.

 

What’s your favourite app or game and why?

At the moment, it’s Medium – I love being able to bookmark articles I’m interested in and read them later on when I have time. I also really love the Arrivo Sydney app – it’s probably my most used App because it tells me when my next bus is coming and if it’s running on time (sorry iPhone users – I think it’s still an android only app).

 

What do you love most about your job?

The most rewarding thing for me is designing something that not only looks great but is usable and loved by it’s users. I also love working in a collaborative environment where sharing knowledge is encouraged so I’m always learning new things.
