Michael Rudd - People of O-Town
“I studied event management and now proudly manage a local DJ. My weekends are usually a Tuesday/Wednesday - the perks of working in hospitality, though I am always keeping busy, I’ve always loved ‘events’ and easily developed an interest in that field. I then began to tie the studies in with my sport passion, I did work experience at some Suncorp Super Netball matches which was amazing.
Sport is definitely my biggest passion, I fit that in between work wherever possible, I also spend a lot of time in Sydney umpiring Netball. I started out travelling to umpire the metro league competition (similar to the Central West Regional League competition but much bigger scale). It allowed me to be coached and mentored by some amazing umpires. From there I was awarded my National A Badge and invited to participate in the Premier League Competition, which is the top umpiring program in the State, with about 20 umpires invited to be involved.
I guess I travel because I love to be challenged and an opportunity in Sydney presented itself, so I took it.”
