This Week at Envato  

by posted in Team
Sep 24
2010

Sadly I’ve come to the end of my two weeks in Melbourne, and by the time you read this will be making the agonizing drive home – for 23 hours! Although the office is still quiet following the Chicago event, it was great catching up with real faces instead of avatars.

Melbourne is almost 2,000 km south of where I live, and the weather has been around 10°C colder than the Sunshine State. I’m heading home with a huge cold, and hope the warmer weather will kill it in no time.

Thanks Melbourne for the fun work days, the good food, and the game of pool.

We both work together designing, developing and supporting our themes for ThemeForest for a living for two years now. Wow! Time flies. :)

This Week At Envato

2010

I’m writing this from the Melbourne Envato office. I made the almost 2,000 km drive with my wife and two of our kids. I’m sitting at Skellie’s desk, and getting used to her chair, which seems to want to tilt forward all the time. Three knick-knacks on her desk – a dinosaur, a soldier and a Pharaoh – have been watching me type.

This Week’s Highlights from Envato Notes

What’s Happening in the Melbourne Office

The office is still quiet this week. Jason and Oz (Aaron Osteraas) made their way back from Chicago earlier than everyone else, only for Oz to fracture his hand doing some cool Kung Fu move. Well done, Oz.

Another week or so and most of the team will be home and back at work. In the meantime, have a ball guys!

Author Interview: Catch22Music

Meet Bobby Cole (Catch22Music) from AudioJungle.

Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from, what do you do for a living?

My name is Bobby Cole, and I am from the small fishing of Mumbles which is in the city of Swansea, South Wales. (Wales is the country that is just on the side of England UK.) It’s a beautiful place, right next to the seaside and surrounded by countryside. My studio is situated just a stones throw from the beach and that’s where I make a living.

Growing up in a small village like the Mumbles, I had to find something to do….! Music did not run in the family, but most instruments that I have learnt have all come quite naturally to me. I started drumming at 7 years old, guitar at 9, piano at 14, and recently have started to learn things like the Mandolin, Banjo, Ektara, and many more!

I am lucky enough to say that music is my full time job. I combine a few things including composing music for AudioJungle, teaching music, and doing the odd studio session as an engineer. There are only two decent recording studios within a 50 mile radius where I am from, so there is not that much competition for studio engineers to get work!
