To new beginnings and rabbit holes

September 25, 2017

I’ve always loved Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.


The concept of chasing a new idea and following it all the way down into the unknown has always resonated quite strongly with me. The fluidity and shall I say ‘wonder’ of it is captivating.


As an autistic person, major life changes — and change in general- can be quite jarring. I’ve found that when I view it through the eyes of Alice spotting that rabbit in the meadow, my fluid thinking and intense curiosity kicks in and I want to chase it to the ends of the earth.


And I’m about to do it again.


My time at PwC Australia is drawing to a close this week. My 2 years with PwC have been amazing and I am sad to be leaving, but it’s time for me to explore the possibilities of working for myself!


It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and only recently acquired the courage and self belief to make the leap.


I want to take a moment to acknowledge and thank the amazing individuals I’ve been so very lucky to have known and worked with at PwC- it’s a very long list. I’m grateful for the opportunities, care, support and general awesome-ness that I've experienced while working there.


I don’t know where my entrepreneurial rabbit hole will lead me but the thrill of embarking on a new adventure makes me more than ok with that. It may even lead me back to structured employment or something else entirely. I’m not ruling anything out.

After I cross the Tasman to cause all kinds of trouble at UX New Zealand 2017, I’ll be taking my freelance UX writing to the next level and exploring other possibilities around inclusive design and much, much more.


If you have ideas, connections, advice, opportunities or anything else that you think may be of use to someone in my position, I’d love to hear it!

Watch this space, because things are about to get awesome!


To new beginnings and rabbit holes!
