Description

May 2016 - August 2016
Game Server Owner and Developer
I was the Owner and Project manager to the development and success of a Garry's mod server. I personally developed new features so that players would enjoy the gameplay, taking their ideas and suggestions into account. I had to teach myself Lua Script in order to do this however it was very fun and I loved taking on the challenge. The server ran with a maximum player slot of 62 which it hit capacity daily and generated a gross profit of over $1,500.

Summer 2015
Festaff, Oxfam and Direct Application
V Festival, Glass Butter Beach, Boardmasters, Creamfields, EDC.
I volunteered at all these festivals and participated in hospitality roles in order to develop my interpersonal skills, having to constantly assist and talk to new people. I feel this was a great thing to do as it really boosted my confidence and social skills when meeting new people or encountering unexpected situations and having to deal with new problems.

June 2014 - August 2014
Self-Employed - Online eCommerce Service
Back in the early years I came up with this idea and revolutionized the boosting service industry. At this time it was still a niche market however today it is a massive industry where customers are paying hundreds, even thousands just for that extra boost in game. I created a online shop where players could purchase a service securely and safely and also chat with customer support online. This hobby generated over $2,000.

Summer 2010
Ski/Snowboard Hire at Tamworth
A part time job at Tamworth for work experience.
I also love Skiing and Snowboarding so every day after work it gave me the opportunity to do what I love!
