I went to high school on a language scholarship, studying French and Indonesian, but left at he end of year 11 to start a Printing Composing apprenticeship.
On completing my apprenticeship, I was immediately promoted to management. Here I learnt end-to-end manufacturing processes, working in estimating, sales, production, scheduling and logistics.
Concurrently, I studied at night-school to qualify for university and represented Western Australia in rowing.
Commencing at the University of Melbourne and concluding at the University of WA, I graduated with a double major in Industrial Relations and Philosophy.
I set to work combining my trade and degree qualifications – consulting to the print industry while co-authoring negotiation exercises for university and tutoring.
I discovered a dual passion for education and consultancy I have to this day.
- Trade and degree qualified
