Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

Deciding to go out on my own. Naeem Callaway's quote sums up the trepidation but it's been one of the best decisions I've made: 'Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.'

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

I work in a creative co-working space in Darlinghurst with an office pup and lots of meeting rooms to host clients and media in. I'm in for business hours but might pop out for a yoga class every now and then.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

A laptop. Or when I'm in the office, I'm surrounded by plants, cookbooks and an empty ceramic coffee cup.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I genuinely believe in all the clients and campaigns I work on, and I'm always happy to give additional advice or chat about ideas.

What are the tools of your trade?

A laptop, WIFI and good Spotify playlist.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

Yes, definitely. I've built up an amazing network of photographers, video agencies, events suppliers, designers and caterers. We tend to work out these relationships on the go.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

Find a great accountant and keep your receipts.
