Trade - Landscaping
My name is Cian Maciejewski.
My passion for construction can be traced back to when I was 4 years old following my Dad around with a “work-man’s” belt consisting of a hammer, a screw driver and a spanner and then calling myself a “working man” as I helped him with his carpentry jobs.
I am an elite level athlete and have been at an elite level since I was 15 years old. This was when I landed my first scholarship at the AIS. I have represented Australia in Running and in Soccer.
I am currently a competitor on Ninja Warrior Australia 2 seasons in a row and into my 3rd season.
I landed my first job in construction at the age of 15, working for a landscape architect and being his offsider. I now own my landscape business and have from the age of 23.
I have also been in Mining for 8 years as an Excavator Operator. I was the only female excavator operator on site and step up Leading Hand/Supervisor. This particular site contains over 600 men and a rough estimate of 20 females.
I have experienced a lot in my life. From losing my amazing Dad when I was just 15 years old to injuries/surgeries, setbacks, bullying, PTSD and severe clinical depression and Anxiety/OCD.
All of these experiences have taught me a lot about myself, my personality type, my values, my weaknesses, acceptance and about the beauty of life itself. However, it is my constant passion, my unbeatable inner drive and self-belief that has made me who I am today.
