What is your role at Startmate?

My focus is on building our community up full of cool, innovative, diverse, curious, adventurous, creative people to continue cultivating the Aus/NZ startup ecosystem. I'm also Startmates' in house Murder Mystery coordinator (though that's not officially on my role description. Yet.)

Favourite Quote?

"Awareness is the greatest agent for change" -Eckhart Tolle

Favourite Book?

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

What’s the first job you’ve ever had, and what did you learn from it?

My first job was in a small privately owned Jewellery store- I learned that being on time = being late and being 5 minutes early = being on time (yes, the hard way). I also learned how to gift wrap in a VERY fancy way which lives on in my gift wrapping to date.

What would be your alternative career?

A Costume Designer for major productions. Or a Criminal Psych. I genuinely considered both of these options at different times in my life.
