What do you do?
PR slash Marketing slash Jack of all trades with anything computer related that Aaron (JumpClimb Director) can't fix at JumpClimb Music Management and Events. We look after some super talented bands and put on some amazing events, including the upcoming Beaufort Street Festival.
Why do you do it?
It's fun, rewarding and I work with a brilliant bunch of people. Not having to go through the daily peak hour public transport commute is a definite perk.
What do you love about the city you live in?
I like that if you put in a little effort and look around there's actually a lot of great things being done by a lot of great people who are very passionate about what they do. I feel like I've only scratched the surface of what there is to enjoy in Perth.
Where did you go for your last holiday?
I did the whole 'quit your 9-5 job and go travelling' thing, so I spent six months going through North America, a bit of Central America and then Europe.
What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
I'm pretty much a jeans/tshirt kind of guy, and I own way too many tshirts. The one thing I've been told I wear far too often (so is probably my favourite) is my 'G'day From WA' knockoff singlet by Perth band Miles Away.
What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
I remember really liking the first run of Gladiators, with Vulcan and Taipan and co.
If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
26 September 1992. Melbourne Cricket Ground.
If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
I'll say Thai green curry. I ripped the recipe off my Dad and claim it as my own, though my grandmother says it's her creation and he did the exact same thing to her.
What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
You can never allow yourself too much time to catch a connecting bus/train/flight. Sprinting up stairs with a massive backpack on is not fun.
Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
My hair is actually the result of multiple hours of perming on a daily basis.
Are you happy with your work/life balance?
I think they kind of merge into one, I'm lucky in that way. Even if I'm not 'working' I'll be thinking about work or how to make something better or whatever, and I'm also incredibly lucky the people and environment I work with is pretty flexible.
How do you define success?
Being able to go to the cupboard in the middle of the night and having something decent to eat other than instant noodles.
What's your spirit animal?
I really feel like I'd get on well as an Otter. I read that they hold hands when they're sleeping so they don't drift apart. I thought that was pretty cool.
