Strike a Pose

Sarah Pauley, 17, is an international photographic and runway model. Her modelling career began in a way any young aspiring model would dream about. At age 13, Sarah was walking around the shops with friends and was asked by the manager of Vivien’s Model Management to take part in a modelling competition.

Four years later and Sarah has just had her international modelling debut in Singapore. As an in-demand model, Sarah’s career will take her to the fashion capitals of the world: Paris, London, New York and Milan.

It’s been an amazing journey for Sarah. ‘I love what I do and I’ve met some incredible people,’ she says.

Working with models from all over the world is definitely one of the perks of the job, according to Sarah. ‘I’ve made friends from Canada, Serbia, London, America and China,’ says Sarah.

Sarah describes her first modelling assignment as very nerve-wracking. ‘I was so excited and nervous at the same time. I had to keep a serious expression on my face and all I wanted to do was smile,’ she says.

Pump Up the Volume

Imagine a job where you can jet around all over the world and work with some of the coolest musicians on the planet. Aussie sound engineer Alan Mourant does just that.

He’s worked closely with some well-known artists including Cold Play, Paris group Gotan Project, Cold War Kids, Liza Minnelli and Australian artists Guy Sebastian, Adam Brand and more.

Alan originally became a sound technician as a stepping stone to another career. ‘I always wanted to be a drummer in a band and thought if I worked as a sound guy in a studio, I could step in if they need a drummer,’ he says.

Two decades on and Alan’s hung up his drumsticks for good. As well as arranging sound for bands, Alan works on musical theatre productions for shows such as Cats and cruises the Caribbean organising musical entertainment for passengers.
