 Ben

Ben

Decided to be a graphic designer in Year 8 after receiving 160% on a digital art project.

Was called ‘goth jock’ in high school for bridging the gap between being a dungeons and dragons playing, black metal listening nerd and a state level swimmer and athlete.

At 4 he literally wet himself with fear at the movie theatre during Harry and the Hendersons and had recurring nightmares for years after.

Adam is an avid Ice Hockey fan and has been playing for the last 8 years. Go Red Wings!

He has just completed his second Masters degree in architecture and construction/design management.

Adam has seen far too many 90’s action movies and is basically a walking library of Arnie quotes.

Travelled around the world for a year and a half. One of the highlights was trekking for four days to reach Machu Picchu at sunrise

For many years had a severe phobia of gherkins, to the point where she couldn’t even bear to hear the word or look at them.

Enjoys fitness and a healthy lifestyle and her favourite exercise is deadlifting (personal best lift is 107kg). She also competed in a bodybuilding competition (and yes this did include LOTS of fake tanning and large amounts of protein!)

Is a massive yogi and likes nothing better than to be standing on his head – “life often makes more sense when you’re upside down”.

Wishes that English wasn’t his first language – “it’s just so bad”.

Could be often be found talking to and stroking plants... “they can often give you some of the best advise”.

Simply loves to get dirty and most weekends go bush - camping, 4WD and kayaking. ESCAPE
