How did you get into games as a hobby?

I have 2 older brothers who loved to game, inevitably I got into games due to them. It led me wanting to beat them at their own game, healthy competition!  The first consoles I played on were their Atari, Sega Mega Drive and the SNES.

What’s your career background?

My career background is in Sales, Healthcare and Customer service. Other odd jobs included being a climbing instructor whilst working in America and removalist whilst working and travelling around Australia.

What’s an average day look like for you at Aardvark Swift?

I get to speak to many different candidates who are passionate about what they do as well as inspecting lots of fantastic art portfolios.

What do you love most about your job?

The work culture. Everyone is super friendly and very approachable. Plus, I get to work in the gaming industry which I’m stoked about as gaming is a great passion of mine.
