There is one realization I have made in life and that is: It's not about the lessons you learn but the lesson you teach that brings meaning to life. There is something enriching to the soul to see the eyes light up of someone you've touched. Teaching is a selfless act that truly benefits mankind.

For two weeks out of the year I get away from my desk job an immerse myself in the world of the music festival. Ridiculously long hours, random obstacles, limited resources where anything and everything can happen. And I love it. Started working the festival as a ticket scanner and since worked the ticket booth and now onto technical support.

If you've ever seen one of those pop up book stores in a shopping complex you may have seen me. It doesn't happen by magic. It takes early hours of pain staking labour to set up pack down and the patiens of a saint to deal with customers that suddenly think book shop means information booth.
Kitchen Hand / Cook
January 2002 - January 2006
You find hospitality job descriptions are meaningless. You become a jack of all trades. From Kitchen to Front of House. It's a chaotic environment where you learn by sink or swim. I learnt an amazing amount of transferable skills under this environment, where the pressure can turn coal into diamonds.
During my tour I managed to complete a Cert III in hospitality and implement an electronic POS system.
