About Me and Townsville
Since moving to Queensland my life has change totally. From living in the hustle and bustle of a big city to the quiet pace of small townships my lifestyle has changed completely.
Townsville has certainly been put through it's paces since I arrived in 2008. With two recessions already and Cyclone Yasi under it's belt, Townsville is certainly a very hard place to live and earn a living.
When we arrived there was a recession and there was very little work about, so you had to take what you could. Luckily the unemployment situation didn't last for long and before I knew it I was employed with TP Human Capital.
Several years later and the decline in employment is back again. Lots of large companies have closed their doors. Sponsorship from large companies was no longer offered to help support local events. I believe all this was due to the environmental taxes enforced throughout the country. It always seems to hit us that little bit harder.
So, in order to continue the fight against unemployment I've decided to display my creative skills.
