Why Wrapp? It’s a seriously smart idea that’s easy, heaps of fun & adds value to all involved. From a personal perspective, it’s really nice to be involved with such an amazing group of people and a platform that actively & inherently shares kind thoughts & happiness… Also, who can say no to a cartoon shark or free stuff from awesome brands?!
Favorite Wrapp purchase: Tough call - either an assortment of Lorna Jane athletic gear for my girlfriend (Australia’s first in-store Wrapp purchase!!) OR my recently acquired Bjorn Borg undergarments - all the support you need whilst beaming with personality on the outside - FUN-ctional!
Craziest thing you’ve seen happen at Wrapp: A pack of scantily clad Swedes, filled to the eyeballs with snaps & crayfish, jumping into water far too cold for anyone’s good!
Hidden talents: None that I know of - I used to be an actor, however that wasn’t so hidden & given I struggled to get a gig, a strong case is hard to make for the talented component as well…
Coolest Trip You’ve Ever Been On: Selling milk flavouring straws in Guatemala, Peru & India…
