Employment

  • Barista/Purveyor/Supervisor at Gloria Jean's Coffees

    Beginning as a 15 year old high school student, my role began as handling money, customer service, preparing cold beverages and cleaning. However, 6.5 years later, my role has evolved to include all preparation of food and beverages, cleaning, food ordering, customer service, supervision and training of new/junior staff members, handling banking and money settling, being trusted with appropriate codes and keys to the store whilst overseeing the overall running of the store in a supervisors position.

  • Presenter at Digi Ed Pty Ltd.

    My role involves teaching/facilitating claymation (stop-motion) workshops in a variety of school contexts for students in stage 1, (year 2) through to secondary and adult/corporate learning environments.\r\n\r\nStudents in this program storyboard their own narrative idea from scratch, design and create their own backdrops and clay characters for their movie, operate all of the ICT and other equipment including digital SLR cameras, tripods, macbook pro laptops and software including Dragon Stop Motion. Students then edit their newly made movie with iMovie adding titles, credits, altering the speed of the movie, music and sound effects in a one day program. Students end with a movie produced entirely by themselves and take it home on a DVD. In this context and situation I oversee the learning and production of up to 32 students working in groups to produce a claymation movie.
