Maxy’s parents both have backgrounds in the advertising industry, so she’s always grown up around creatives and capitalism. From a young age, she was lucky to be exposed to weird and wonderful idea generation techniques, art of all kinds, and some fantastic writing. And she still love a good advert. In the early 00’s, like many other millennials in the tech industry, she got her start by playing Neopets. She learnt the basics of HTML and CSS, along with Photoshop, and was on her way towards a career in web – even though she didn’t know it yet. Maxy accumulated a ridiculous number of interests growing up, and had a lot of trouble settling on what she wanted to pursue. She ended up going to university for marketing and economics, while still tinkering around with graphic design on the side. It was only a matter of time before she realised that she could do a lot of what she loves, all in the same job, by being a product designer. What gets Maxy out of the bed in the morning? Strong coffees, and knowing that I’ll get to learn something new every day. (And if it’s Masterchef AU season, that’s a factor too.) When you’re not working you’re… At the dance studio, organising something, or eating something weird and wonderful at a new restaurant!
