I don’t like labelling people, but if I were a blog post, I’d be tagged something like this:
aardvark, agnostic, albury, apolitical, architecture, art, australia, black humour, blue eyes, brunette, business, calm, caucasian, citroen, cook, design, gay, gen-y, gym, hr, lhatese, male, media, melbourne, nailbiter, photography, slightly left, swim, sydney, taken, trafford, zulu
So that’s me, now for my story.
I was born in Sydney but moved to rural Australia soon after, the third of five boys. For the first 18 years of my life, I knew I wanted to be an architect. I would spend free time drawing house plans and reading architecture books. But when I finished school and enrolled in architecture at university, I had one horrible realisation: architecture was not the career for me. You see, I’m not a details person, and was more interested in daydreaming how a building would feel, than trying to figure out how to make it stand.
So I quit the degree and talked my way into a PA role, which had the unforeseen side-affect of giving me a taste of the business world. Six years later I graduated from a business degree and have been working in Human Resources in the media industry ever since.
So here I am. On New Years Eve 2009 I made a resolution to find my artistic aesthetic that has eluded me so far. I started culturepublic a week later, the idea being to post for a year and then look at my tag cloud to see what I’m most interested in.
So thanks for being part of my journey.
