When I was a kid I wanted to be… a comic book creator or a film director. “Trainspotting” was seminal, I wanted to create something as good as that.
We started Workshop Sydney because…we felt Sydney was lacking the community/connection, we wanted to provide a place where people could come and learn, be inspired and make new friends.
The obstacles that have come our way… were putting up your own roadblocks through procrastination. Sometimes the hardest thing is getting started on something, but once you do, the road opens up.
The highlight for us over the past 12 months were…being invited to talk at TedX Sydney, one of the most inspiring platforms on the planet AND launching Work-Shop, the most exciting thing i’ve done to date.
Advice for readers wanting to get into our profession…just go for it, jump in the deep end and you will soon find out if you will sink or swim.
