What year did you graduate from Hume Anglican Grammar and tell us a little bit about your journey after Secondary school?
I graduated from Hume Anglican Grammar in 2018 and then completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Major in Accounting) and a Bachelor of Information Technology (Major in Networks & Security) at Monash University. I graduated from Monash at the end of 2022 and now work as a graduate technology consultant at Ernst and Young.
Can you provide us with a ‘snapshot’ into your daily routine?
The fun thing about being a consultant is that no two days are the same. One day I can be working on client proposals, other days I am working on client engagements and other days I am focusing on learning and development or other internal initiatives.
However, my workflows for these different days are usually fairly similar. On a typical day, I will have a quick catch-up call with the smaller team I am working with to discuss where everyone is up to and what their plans are for the day. Then I usually work for a few hours before we have a wider team meeting to get our content reviewed by the senior members of the wider team. My afternoon is usually then followed by working on action items from the content review sessions.
What is your fondest memory of your time at Hume Anglican Grammar?
Meeting and building lifelong friendships with my mates. We spent most lunch times hanging out with each other on the oval kicking a footy, playing tiggy or playing soccer on the back soccer pitch.
How has your time at Hume Anglican Grammar influenced your likes and pathways after school?
The teachers at Hume Anglican Grammar helped guide me into studying accounting during VCE. This then led to my interest in the subject and becoming my major at university. I now work for one of the largest accounting firms globally. My involvement with the computer club also helped to drive my interest in computers and allowed me to explore programming and other IT fundamentals which I use in my day-to-day work.
If your friends could describe you in one word, what would it be?
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Elon Musk – it would be fun to learn a bit more about his wild brain!
Where is your favourite travel destination?
My favourite country to travel to is The Netherlands.
What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
I was awarded a National Emergency Medal for helping with the 2019-2020 Bushfires.
