DIRECTOR
White Chocolate Connoisseur, and Lover of Premium WordPress Themes
close
info:
Jake registered his first domain name at age 13. It was for a Michael Jackson ‘Dangerous’ fan club that he ran from both the school canteen at recess, and the local community radio station on Friday evenings... awkward much? Jake went on to work for major Australian broadcasters including Austereo, Foxtel and the 2SM Super Network in the marketing, programming and music departments. Following a few pit stops, including a couple of senior positions in marketing and digital agencies, Jake fell head first into artist management.

Bianca Musico

ACCOUNT MANAGER
Social Media addict & Occasionally Funny
close
info:
With a surname like Musico, it seems like destiny that Bianca ended up working in the music industry. Disgruntled that her surname didn’t gift her with supreme musical talents no matter how much she practiced, she works diligently to channel her creativity into helping artists reach their full potential online. With a social media addiction and a closet lover of the emailed word, Bianca makes it a priority that she’s on the forefront of all things digital and the latest from Menulog. An avid traveller, she believes that “not all who wander are lost,” and lately has found herself wondering whether others find her puns funny. Though the first thing on her to-do list in a new country is check out the local music scene. Above all Bianca is a rocker at heart and the only time she isn’t discovering a new band or rediscovering her love an old one is when she’s watching an ice hockey game, researching her next piercing or travel spot, usually with Guns n Roses playing in the background.

Sherwesh Bajracharya

GRAPHIC DESIGNER
They Just Call Me 'S'
close
info:
‘Love what you do and do what you love!’ is Sherwesh’s motto and he loves nothing more than solving big, juicy design problems. His practice revolves around: lots of research, thinking really big then narrowing it back down to a solution that fits the need. When he’s not designing he likes to chill out with some post-rock goodness and/or get lost in a great read.
