How did you find your way to Blick?
I’ve always liked business and being creative, and in finding out how to combine my two loves I’ve worked in a number of industries: got my Gordon Gekko on at Liberty Financial in the banking and finance industry; flew around Australia for an advertising agency taking briefs and selling advertising; built up a great deal of experience at successful design agency and created successful brands and communications strategies; and on the way even got my commercial pilot’s license (don’t ask me to explain the last one).
“After all these experiences I found that the common thread is creativity and communications. I love networking with different people, businesses and industries, and above all, helping great businesses to succeed.

What inspires you creatively?
I like to analyse and take something from everything around me: people, the environment, art, other businesses, events and the unusual. I’m particularly interested in design from the ‘60s and ‘70s, so…

I enjoy restoring my 1960s Kombi Van, cruising on (and sometimes crashing) a 1957 Vespa, and playing records on my 1960s Kriesler Master Sonic stereo. This era had character! These designs were created with love and passion – not just the practical, but also the aesthetics.
