About me

Kiwi-born graphic designer and brand specialist living in Tokyo. I enjoy working with creative teams on large scale collaborative projects, as well as consulting businesses on brand development and design needs.

I spent eight years working in Niseko as a designer and marketing coordinator where I managed the creative needs for a number of brands including the largest tour operator in the region, as well as a bilingual magazine.
On top of an extensive background in print advertising - with a career that began at Fairfax Media almost 15 years ago - I have experience in digital marketing and social media, coordinating a print magazine, and managing small creative teams in the production of video, photography, and written content.

Hobbies include wandering the streets and looking at everything in confusion, calcifying in front of my computer screen for weeks on end, and meeting other creative types - preferably over drinks and food.
