Tell me about someone who has influenced your career?
There are many people, from my first boss, to the amazing people that we employ here at TMS. Influence doesn’t necessarily come from above!
How did you get your first job in Media?
In 1992, along with 2000 other people, I applied for a scholarship at the biggest agency in Australia - George Patterson. I was one of the fortunate few to be chosen. So, I did the scholarship, and then offered myself for work experience as I finished my degree. During that time I hounded & hounded Peter Cornelius & Marg Cooney for a full time job, and when one became available – I got it!
