After spending a childhood in rural Australia dreaming of travel and adventure, I couldn’t wait to head off to see the world. A commerce degree later I was on my way to London where I worked in advertising and the music industry, and travelled for six years.
Then one day, I realised the biggest adventure had been waiting for me at home the whole time.
I was soon back in Perth to do the one thing I’d always dreamed of doing - completing a History degree. After juggling part time study with a job as a digital marketing specialist I took the plunge and am now studying full time at the University of Western Australia.
I’m endlessly curious about the stories we choose to tell, and fascinated by those we don’t. Historypunk is a journal of my ongoing adventures in history.
