I grew up variously in Melbourne, Brisbane, Houston TX, in addition to shorter stays at a few other cities in the US, Asia and Europe (thanks to a mom who worked for an airline). Eventually we settled down in New York, where I lost my childhood Aussie accent, eventually attending college upstate in Cornell.
Since graduating, I’ve worked in IT for Kaplan’s test prep division, for TheStreet, the financial media company owned by Jim Cramer, and now find myself at The Orchard, which feels like the next big step in a life that hasn’t followed any kind of rhyme or reason, and which I’m totally fine with because that just makes things more interesting.
I’ve gone through a number of different musical phases recently and while I’m currently listening to mostly EDM and Hip-Hop on my Spotify playlist, if you looked at it a couple months ago it was a lot more Indie Rock/Pop. If I’m not at work or hanging out with friends, chances are you’ll find me in the gym, where I’ve caught a pretty severe case of the weightlifting bug. I’ve only been training for about a year total, but it’s a passion of mine and I hope to eventually compete.
I didn’t have any pics of me handy so I had to snag an Instagram of me with one of my all-time favorite Olympic lifters, Dmitry Klokov.
