About me pages are my least favourite of all pages. You feel all this pressure to summarise yourself, your life and the essence of your being in just a few sentences. So, I’m just going to try to break it down in sections and ramble on. Feel free to read it, or don’t. Whatevs.
Work is something that I refuse to rule my life. I understand that work is necessary to enjoy the lifestyle I am accustomed to within the current structure of society. That being said, I refuse to work for assholes and I don’t work for companies that are not inline with my moral compass. I also refuse to work for employers who expect me to give up my life for them. I will come to work, I will kick ass, I will be straight up and honest about everything I do – but I won’t take my work home and I refuse to play office politics.
So what is it that I do? I am, officially, a perm part time employee with the super fancy title of Web Content Administrator. However, that title doesn’t give any meaning to what I do. I am the social media strategist, online marketing department, copy writer, brand representative and all round kick ass rockstar.
I also offer my services on a freelance basis. I’m pretty picky with that too. I once had a client who constantly touched my laptop screen with his pointer finger. I asked him to stop. He didn’t. I stopped working with him. Sigh. I also turned down a very lucrative position at a fashion label simply because they imported fur. I feel really lucky that I am able to pick and choose the work I participate in.
I leave the best for last – StaffByMaff. It is my most recent and most exciting venture. I am the brand representative for the StaffByMaff fashion label in Australia. I sell, distribute and promote their stunning clothes here in Australia. This partnership just kind of happened super naturally… I started off as a client, buyer, supported and before I knew it I had created an online community of Australian fans of StaffByMaff.
