Experience

As a Commercial Designer across many retail and corporate brands. Digital print, signage, displays, publication, and social media platforms. I have been involved with installations and artistic exhibitions, from the Auckland Museum, Luxury Super-yachts, Nike promotional, NZ Rockshops to Branding across Hospitality, Retail, Schools and Sports clubs.


Opportunities with these industries has given me conversations with many of New Zealand’s diverse communities, especially Maori and Pacifica. Understanding respectful protocols gave me in-roads for collaboration within some sizeable projects. 


Myself

I have a passion for the process of creative design. Built from a strength in illustration, inspired by like-minded people and an artistic productive ethic. 

Design is my profession. A metamorphosis of artistic styles that blends to Graphic Digital Design.

I draw a lot, laugh a lot, like to work in a team, responsible, punctual, ambitious, down to earth and open minded. I can strum a good guitar and hold a beat on the drums. I enjoy being a part of the art-world and exhibiting, love my family, surfing and snow-boarding any chance I get.


Tools

The’ Adobe Suite’ is my toolbox, using “Illustrator” mainly over the years to build and create content with a vector base, ‘Photoshop’ to enhance images and ‘InDesign’ for print layout and final publications.

Adobe ‘After Effects’ has also become a tool of choice for recent projects in animation.


Awards

Working with some awesome teams has given me opportunities to put myself forward into different design platforms where we were awarded a Silver Best Design Award in 2019, followed by a Waiheke National Small Sculpture Award Finalist 2020.
