Where I started out.
Fresh out of high school aged 18, I decided to follow a dream of mine & take a 3 month working holiday at Coble Water Ski School, Lillington, NC, USA. I took the feeling of launching into something new & exciting, & used it to create something I was passionate about; a brand called 'The Adventurous Kind'.
And that was that. I'd been there for a month or so & I'd printed my first ever batch of Adventurous Kind tees & tanks in Lillington, North Carolina.
I'd started my brand in the US, I was waterskiing every day & had the world at my fingertips. Dream come true! So I thought.. haha!
Despite what my parents had always told me, turned out running a business really did require a lot more work than I originally thought.
Everything in the US went perfectly, literally one of the best experiences of my life.
When I got home, the work started. I wasn't in the US living the dream anymore & realised I had to sell at least 25/30 shirts a week just to eat, put fuel in the old van & cover general living costs. Let alone invest more in the business. In the end I didn't quite sell 25 shirts a week, but I managed to make something decent out of it! Lets just say I got really good at living with the essentials I really needed !
Next I was decking out a $300, 1983 Toyota Hiace van as a camper (yes $300!) with plans to travel up Australia's East Coast on a bit of a "marketing campaign" for the Adventurous Kind for 6 months. Mainly based around Port Macquarie & surrounds I'd pick up literally any work I could get to support the business. This included high pressure cleaning the local treatment plant a few times... Lots of fun.. But I wouldn't change a thing! With the remaining hours of the day it was me & my camera getting as much marketing material as I could get my hands on.
I came home after 6 months of living the vanlife on the East Coast & found that unfortunately, I wasn't able to sustain the costs that came with living independently & taking the brand to the next level all at the same time. So I decided to pick up some full time work & leave it be for a short while. My last Adventurous Kind related event was just under 2 years ago in October 2018: The Berry's Buzz Cut for BCNA
. Where over $50,000 was raised for the Breast Cancer Network Australia(BCNA).
A lot has happened in between but most importantly I've found myself practicing photography & videography. Safe to say I've finally found something to add to the Adventurous Kind's portfolio & pumped to announce that we are back!
Based in Horsham & Geelong, VIC. Hit me up for all your content creating, photography, videography & media needs!
