Description

Growing up, I always loved helping mum and dad with their home renovations and going to house inspections on the weekend. This interest grew whilst I was at high school and led me to study housing and design during Year 12. The subject introduced me to designing and I found myself becoming obsessed with drawing and curating. With this new found interest, I had clarity when it came time to choosing my career pathway and decided that I did want to further my studies at university.

In 2018, I moved from my hometown in Tasmania up to Geelong and began my five-year degree studying Architecture and Construction Management at Deakin University. This degree was challenging but in the best way possible. I was able to meet a lot of different people and experience first hand what it would be like to work in the built environment. My interest in construction overcame my interest in design / Architecture and I managed to land a job with a residential company. The experience and knowledge I gained from working complemented my university studies and solidified my interest in the construction industry.
In my final year of university, I applied for a commercial construction position that was designated for graduates of similar degrees.

I went through the interview process and was successful, although was offered the position in Adelaide. Moving to Adelaide was not something I had envisioned for myself, and it took a fair but of convincing and encouraging to even consider the idea.
A few weeks later, I decided that I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity and committed to the big move, all I had to do now was go and get my degree.

Nearly 8 months later, I’m living in Adelaide and working full time for a Tier 1 Construction company and haven’t looked back!
