    Summary:
    I am a motivated stylist and brand marketer with a passion for the luxury, fashion, beauty and fragrance industries. I have applied my creativity and artistic skills working directly with such fashion icons as Thea Basiliou and helping market renowned brands such as Marc Jacobs, Unilever (Sunsilk, Tresemme, Dove), and Puig Fragrances. Throughout my career, I have consistently produced brand strategies that deliver results. My 10+ years of experience across the fashion retail and media industries have taught me how to interpret research, complex theories, and concepts for specific audiences to turn opportunities into commercial realities with profitable outcomes. My combination of analysis and creativity is rare in the fashion industry and enables me to meet marketing objectives that exceed client expectations within tight deadlines and budgets. My leadership, communication, team work, goal setting, time management, and tenacity are valuable assets to the fashion and beauty industries. My accomplishments include signing clients never before engaged such as The Athlete’s Foot and Champion, and I have consistently delivered on targets in the millions of dollars. In addition, I have excellent relationships with key media agencies, including Universal McCann, OMD, Starcom, Mediacom, Junior, MOJO, Dirty Chook, Me & Bond, Rapid Media, Mark Skinner Advertising, Zenith Optimedia, and Media Merchants. I am an intelligent, analytical, and creative problem solver with excellent research and writing skills and social, fashion, and consumer insights. My colleagues and managers appreciate my positive attitude, enthusiasm, and eagerness to contribute to any team. My education reflects my unique combination of business sense and creativity: I earned two Bachelor’s Degrees with Distinction from Queensland University of Technology: the first in Business (Advertising & Public Relations majors) and the second in Creative Industries (majoring in Media and Communication).

    Title
    Audience Research & Strategy: Queensland Museum + Non Executive Director: Brisbane Writers Festival
    Demographic info
    Brisbane, Australia | Entertainment
    Current:
    Non Executive Director at Brisbane Writers Festival, Manager - Audience Research, Strategy and Advocacy at Queensland Museum Network, Strategic Advisor at Benjamin Hamley
    Education:
    Queensland University of Technology, The University of Queensland, Australian Institute of Company Directors, Queensland University of Technology, Queensland University of Technology, Coorparoo Secondary College
    Summary:
    I would like to preface this by saying; I have never had a particular job in mind to be the cornerstone of my career. I am a Strategic Advisor and Researcher of people, culture, technology and design. I have a passion for understanding the mechanisms of creativity and innovation in society and this is grounded in my love of cognitive science and philosophy. I am intensely interested in disruptive technology and design principally because of their ability to traverse disciplinary boundaries. It is likely that projects exploring the way we perceive, understand and manage the world, through technology will be central to my work in the future. I like to work at the boundaries of disciplines and I like to work with people who have never previously worked together. I am a serial collaborator, and I specialise in not specialising. I have worked in both the design and delivery of tertiary education programs and I believe that the most effective education is that which is based in economically sustainable and collaborative work. Learning outcomes are often emergent; the easiest and cheapest way to find them is simply - to start something. I wish to live in a world where sustainable, local business can flourish, and citizens enjoy a life which is not necessarily delineated by work / personal boundaries. I want to work with people who have passion, and are successful in sharing their passion with the world. I don't really believe in 'position descriptions', however I do find that there are three roles that best represent me in my element: A Catalyst: I actively support and integrate new work into the direction of changing cultural movements. A Communicator / Challenger: I enjoy sharing a vision and message with a broad team and stakeholders. I particularly enjoy competitive environments such as pitches and presentations. An Experimenter: I like to work with new teams and test new approaches. I am always open to new opportunities - please get in touch.

    Summary:
    Matt began TONIC Design as a sole Practitioner in 2002. Noting a lack of good old-fashioned service within the industry, Matt’s aim has always been to test the notion of the traditional Architect / Client relationship. Believing that a more collaborative venture between client, occupants, consultants and contractors would be the catalyst to provide exemplary client service and maintain unique but functional people-oriented architecture. Matt enjoys the multiple challenges of creating architecture across numerous project types including commercial, retail, industrial, medical, hospitality and residential. A background of 5 years working in 5 star hotels before finding architecture has given Matt an ability to merge unique design solutions with the functional requirements for the hospitality sector. Matt has also been instrumental in his research and development of a better and more affordable housing solution for the mass market. He has also overseen the emergence of TONIC projects across the Asia Pacific Region in other international markets such as New Zealand, Vietnam and Indonesia. Matt understands he has an obligation to provide unique, functional yet sustainable architectural solutions. He believes that sustainability begins when buildings are designed to sit harmoniously within their environment and he takes pride in finding economically sustainable solutions for the life span of a building. Matt thinks that if we can create spaces which enrich peoples lives, then we can get better people.

    Summary:
    I am passionate about discovering potentials in people, businesses and the society. As a final year student undertaking Bachelor of Information Technology at QUT, I have developed academic skills and soft skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication. I believe the most important aspect in university education is not to memorise theories or attain a high GPA. However, university allows me to learn more about myself, discovering my passion and unique learning style. Despite of university study, I also enjoy getting involved in various activities and events at university societies and developing precious friendship with amazing people. As a director of business development at AIESEC QUT, I also managed to develop a wide range of professional network. More importantly, I have made every meeting with business executives an unforgettable one by learning about the industries and their unique insights about current affairs. Therefore, I consider this as my best learning method --- listening. I'm willing to learn from everyone and listen to their innovative ideas which I think it's the most invaluable thing to do in the world.
