I started as a graphic designer and moved into advertising. I now spend most of my time doing Art Direction and illustration... it's a very different life to when I used to be laborer putting in Telstra boxes.
I'm a fitter/machinist working on cnc machinery, and doing a boilermakers apprenticeship aswell so i will have a dual-trade this time in a couple of years.
Its not as glorious as it sounds anymore, trust me 2 days on an oxy torch and an 9" grinder really is starting to make me think......... Just kidding! we all got to start out somewhere...... and i'm just doing it again!
