In one way or another, I've been involved in the creative industry now for about 15 years. Everything from traditional advertising, to websites, social media and EDMs. My new love is working with businesses who are keen to grow their brands digitally.
I've had plenty of experience using content management systems and in implementing Shopify, SquareSpace, Canva and Mailchimp. Social media wise, my favourites for making brands famous are Instagram and Facebook.
In the past, I've had both permanent and contract work in ad agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi DGS, DDB Milan, Y&R, Ogilvy and FCB.
Brands I've worked with include NZ Fashion Week, Rebel Sport, Soul Food Organic, Air NZ, Briscoes, Noel Leeming, Massey University, Burger King, Westpac, Volkswagen, Phillips, and Tower Insurance.
Nowadays, I'm based in Otago, but I do work remotely for a lot of jobs and will happily take on board any excuse to travel back to the big smoke.
