What do you do?
I work for Village Roadshow as a retail assistant at Australian Outback Spectacular and photographer for Paradise Country, two tourist attractions located on the Gold Coast. I also recently graduated from Griffith University with a degree in Bachelor of Digital Media, with a major in photojournalism.
Why do you do it?
As an emerging, visual storyteller with a passion for the still image, I use photography as a medium to gain a more in-depth understanding of my relationship with the world around me. After traveLling for a few years, I would love to pursue a career in the editorial industry, perhaps a creative role for a magazine.
What do you love about the city you live in?
I love living 20 minutes from the Gold Coast and 40 minutes from Brisbane. I get to experience the busy, city life with a cultural diversity, along with the amazing beaches on the Gold Coast – getting the best of both worlds!
Where did you go for your last holiday?
To celebrate the end of my degree, I decided to take a trip to Port Douglas and experience the town known as, ‘the Bali of Australia’. Through snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, hiking through the tropical Daintree Rainforest and experiencing the historical events and nature of Kuranda, this trip was the highlight of my year.
