I am a high-calibre graphic designer who enjoys translating robust brand strategy into compelling design solutions.
I am an experienced mid to senior level designer and have worked across many client industries. I’ve designed compelling solutions for a broad range of iconic clients including the New Zealand International Film Festival, The University of Auckland Business School, and Fly Buys.
I consider myself an experienced designer with crafty hands, an original perspective and an abundance of fresh design ideas. I have the capacity to think strategically and develop a good idea into pragmatic and inspirational design solutions. I will extract a gem of an idea from a brief and explore it, striving to deliver transformative business outcomes that are also visually captivating.
My passion lies in discovery – learning about and understanding my clients so I can deliver to their business and brand goals.

creative exploring. Its always helpful to have peers, coworkers, and art directors providing a second set of eyes to look at a project, especially once you have become too attached.
Think like a child. Don't be limited by your own expectations and perceived roadblocks that come from learning as an adult, children have the capacity to fly to the moon and back on a unicorn so why cant we do the same for creative work.

A little of the Maori language from New Zealand (where I'm from). Its a very elegant and totally interpretational language which makes it slightly complex yet interesting.
