When I graduated from high school I was accepted into a ‘guinea pig' degree at Macquarie University. Bachelor of Marketing & Media was the first and only of its kind in Australia where marketing and media were brought together in the one degree. Only 30 of us were accepted into the study as we were launched into a series of experimental classes and lectures.
Looking back, this degree was very influential to my career in startups that followed. ‘Trial and error’ has become the ever present theme of my day-to-day.
I am a creative person by nature as I love to spend my spare time painting portraits, collecting ornaments and hand crafting clay. While the business world may not seem relevant to the art world, I have found that there is nothing more creative then starting businesses from scratch, proving the market, and creatively drawing customers to purchase from you.
