What are you hoping to learn here at SLIK?
As much as possible on absolutely everything, the digital world fascinates me and I'm quickly realising that my old job/team really didn't do a good job of giving me the opportunity to grow/learn as much as I would have liked. In the short time I've been at SLIK I have already learnt and grown so much and I'm excited to keep doing that. One of my outlooks on life which crosses over a lot from work to my personal life is - the more you seek to learn and understand, the more you can connect and grow.
What would you say is your strongest skill?
People skills - The ability to connect with different types of people and be empathetic.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
A cold beer, a good pub band, Karaoke, making homemade pizzas with my family and camping trips with mates.
Where have you found inspiration recently?
My Mum, Dad and 2 brothers, I’m inspired daily by the strength, support and vulnerability they have shown over the past 2 years.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever worked on?
In work life: Anything I’ve worked on at SLIK in the last month beats anything I've worked on before. Personal life: Helping roof my in-progress home down south.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Mum bought me a small phrase/advice book when I was little and I remember keeping it open to one page in particular, the phrase read, “Never look down on someone unless you are helping them up”. It’s always stuck with me.
