I’m interested in the intersection between design, travel and business. I love design! I’m a print designer and I’d say my eyeballs are on point. I can spot a double space from 2 meters and guess the typeface in 3 seconds. But – I dislike clients, sitting still, having a desk and staring at a screen, so I had to get creative. I’m also interested in lifestyle design, so it makes perfect sense to push the concept of ‘designer’ a little further.
Travel has always been my first love. Aged four, I smugly showed my granny how to do up her seat belt on the plane. Aged 14, I had been to five out of seven continents, and at 18 I bought a one way plane ticket from my tiny village in the UK to big sunny Australia, never to return. Since then I have been on countless adventures, been to 40+ countries, spent seven years solo on the road and incorporate travel into my life in any way I can.
But here’s the clincher – it’s on a tight budget. Business wise I’m very creative in how things are done – partly, because I have no idea what I’m doing, and partly, I think that naivety and resourcefulness will get you a long way, mixed with a ton of enthusiasm and you’re good to go.
