Ian Healy knows how to work hard but have a bit of fun - so he puts on an annual awards show for his staff at Hoppy's Handwash Cafe. Halfback was there, with snapper Richard Walker filling in when Jason couldn't be in two places at once. He made up for it on the edit though.
So it's been a whirlwind three months since I left the steady employ of the Queensland Rugby League and all its Origin goodness and struck out on my own.
Things have gone in some totally different directions than I expected!
The best parts (so far):
Working with the Queensland Firebirds on their digital marketing and social
Lots of video production for the Robert Bird Group. Not sport - whoa!
Reaching an agreement to take over BLK's social media management
A shoot with the familiar faces filming Cam Smith and JT.
Reconnecting with my ex-boss the awesome Marina Go after - what - 15 years?
More time brushing up on my Premier Pro.
Building a new site and logo for Multimac Media and getting kitted out with new camera gear.
Getting stuck into some charity work and joining Ian Healy's Captain's Club.
Social media analysis for Stadiums Queensland.
... And creating a new start-up venture from scratch to help improve the live sport experience (and help sporting teams earn more coin). I get my beta version of The Siren today. Not bad in three months, I reckon.
Watch out for The Siren (and more) in 2018!
