Dylan Gow grew up in Australia with what he describes as a low socioeconomic background, the result of a vicious cycle of unemployment and uneducation. Nevertheless, he has gone on to create an Aboriginal clothing company, worked as a marketing strategist at Google, and, for the past three years, built a passion for a very lucrative industry: rubbish.
