Who am I?

I am a qualified designer and developer

I am a qualified designer and developer with 10 years experience in the web design & development industry in New Zealand and overseas. I am formally qualified with Masters and Bachelor degrees in Design Innovation from Victoria University in Wellington.

I possess a wide range of skills and enjoy working in most areas of design including video post production, game development and 3D modelling. I have a keen interest in web and mobile design & development. In particular, the improvement of the user’s experience within web and mobile applications. Recently, I have been working on the development of popular content management systems to improve the user experience. The objective being to allow less tech-savvy users to achieve complex tasks with little computer knowledge.

I have an entrepreneurial attitude that was fostered initially in the private sector. I have the ability to work with smaller and larger structured multidisciplinary teams. I pride myself on being a talented trouble-shooter and team player.
