Bio

I am a versatile designer with an excellent understanding of front end coding. I started out my career as a freelance web designer and eventually co-founded Hatch, a company focused on designing and developing customer solutions and platforms for clients. 

 

After moving on from Hatch, I worked 4 years at a digital agency specialising in Shopify website build as their lead designer. During this time I worked with others to deliver bespoke website design and build primarily in the retail sector for well known NZ brands. I undertook took the UI/UX design, wireframing, design direction and project management.

 

Apart from my digital design skills, I'm also competent across front end development coding websites. I am using my experience to help small businesses to grow their online presence.
