I was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand and studied Graphic Design at AUT, majoring in illustration. Following graduation I worked in a boutique branding studio before travelling overseas to live and work in London. Over the next six years I worked at Tribal DDB London, quickly rising to the position of Interactive Art Director. Since moving back home to New Zealand I have worked as a Digital Designer at Saatchi & Saatchi, Shine, Touchcast and Colenso BBDO before transitioning back into Brand Design and Art Direction roles at Little Giant (Isobar), Principals, Shine, Designworks and Culture&Theory. In that time I have also produced two human children, rescued two canine companions, hand-restored one classic car and built a couple of custom bicycles.
