Life at Reload
What brought you to Reload?
I moved from Bathurst and I had a degree in advertising and marketing that I had never utilised. So I asked Reload for an internship but instead they gave me a job writing content. From there, I managed to wing a job through my passion for the industry.
I had no concept of SEO except for some vague explanation my brother gave me. Since then it’s changed. I just wanted to get into digital. I kind of fell into it and enjoyed it!
What makes Reload different to other workplaces?
I’ve worked in family businesses and Reload so one – it’s not being run by my mother! Actually, I’ve also worked with a boutique accommodation provider in Bathurst. So at Reload, you feel a bit more a part of the team, whereas at previous organisations there are hundreds and hundreds of people on the floor, so you’re just one of them.
You walk around with your ukulele a lot. What’s the story behind that?
I have it at my desk as creative thinking time. So if I need a break from doing whatever I’m doing at my desk I get the ukulele out. Uke break.
Outside of the office
What is your #1 most played song at the moment/ever?
Sounds Like Balloons – Biffy Clyro
Coffee or tea?
Rain or sunshine?
It’s a ridiculous question because they both have their benefits. Sometimes apart, sometimes at the same time. Sunny rain.
Computer or console?
Console because I’m lazy!
Apple or Samsung?
