Team Philosophy: “Challenge accepted”

Outside of TwoScots: Living in country Victoria means I live in close proximity to the Macedon Wine Region and goes hand in hand for my passion and love for wine. To counteract my wine habits I’m an avid runner and currently training for a half marathon. Walking my poodle (Jon Carlo) and listening to crime podcasts are mandatory to my weekly routine.

Born and Bred: Born in Thailand, raised in Melbourne

Team Philosophy: With the amount of time spent at work, they say your colleagues are basically your second family. I think it’s important to be surrounded by a group of people who are supportive and share similar values.

Outside of TwoScots: You can find me playing futsal most weeknights, otherwise I’m out with mates exploring Melbourne’s gems. A quiet one for me is working on a jigsaw puzzle, beating my mates in a couple of board games, but recently I’ve gotten into diamond painting – it’s very therapeutic!
