When Ann was 14, she discovered ‘Blogging’. She didn’t know at the time but the moment changed her life. She started her own blog, and for years after that, became obsessed with innovating new ways of creating content that’s absurdly useful and effective.
As part of Rowdy’s client team, Ann supports the strategy team, becoming the reliable point of contact for clients, and coordinating campaigns. Ann has a real passion for connecting with people from all walks of life and has always found herself working in the space of social impact.
Prior to joining Rowdy, Ann worked in Singapore as a marketing and communications professional for a global media business and then a food and beverage start-up. Her experience spans across organising launch events, coordinating press efforts across the APAC region, managing content strategies, and driving digital marketing campaigns. In her current position, Ann focuses on helping clients create brand content that is conversational, engaging and adds value to people’s lives. She is a firm believer in the power of social media to connect consumers to brands.
Ann holds a BA in journalism and communication from the University of New South Wales.
Rachel is a high energy, design loving, strategic communications professional who loves to push boundaries. Rachel has had a fascinating federal government communications career from providing crisis communication for disaster zones in Australia to merging three departmental annual reports into one.
Rachel is no stranger to managing high profile, complex communications projects involving organisational transformation, brand strategy, executive communication, internal communication, digital service delivery, niche audiences, multicultural and Indigenous groups, crisis communication, national campaigns, and creative outputs such as web publishing, digital design and video production.
Lucky for Rachel, this experience translates well into the private sector world of Rowdy where she has now found herself learning, growing and being challenged by new ideas and ways of working (and using a Mac every day!).

Kenzo has completed his certificate in Kindergarten and has excelled in making friends and bringing in cool things to show and tell. One of the highlights from Kenzo’s year in Kindergarten was winning an award for keeping his hands and feet to himself.
From the age of two Kenzo has practised Aikido and can pretty much only roll around, run around and say hi-ya. Kenzo also enjoys swimming, although not in the big pool and is an up and coming breakdancer.
Feedback from Kenzo’s first teacher revealed he was breaching the OH&S standards by continuing to break dance in class with teachers and children around. So far he has not won an award for not breakdancing in class.
