Born and raised in South Africa, Hayley Gigi Polak worked in Investment Banking in Cape Town and London for 5 years. In 2008, she relocated to New York with the intention of exploring a new career path. She ventured into the Fashion Industry where she received extensive training from one of the Global Brand Ambassadors. This experience solidified her decision that working in a creative environment was her passion. She then moved to Dallas where she spent the next 2 years working as a Store Manager and Assistant Buyer. In late 2010 due to the economic recession, the company Hayley worked for closed its doors. This compelled her to quickly take action and while in the process of relocating back to New York, fate stepped in. She was asked to join a start-up online business targeting the Entertainment Industry. The opportunity enabled her to travel around the US attending film festivals and interacting with talented industry veterans. A Producer mentored Hayley for a year and recognizing her talents inspired her to pursue a career in Film in 2012.
