How can I work for you?


Location

Palmerston North, New Zealand


Skills

I'm very well organised and support a high level of professionalism by keeping you regularly informed on the status of your project. When I agree to take on a project, it's because it has gotten me excited and this breeds creative enthusiasm. I'm determined to produce a great solution, one that ticks all your boxes, but also focuses on the core need behind the project.


I enjoy problem solving and getting into the details, this combination means I’m very thorough. I want to know about your goals, your communication needs, what gets you going. I want to use my design and personal skills to help your project succeed.


I work using: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, font management Suitcase Fusion and other tools such as ears (for listening), email (for communicating), notebooks and word processors (for recording important information) and paper (for sketching ideas, anytime, anywhere).

Interests

Creative activities I'm into include sketching, painting, photography and digital art. I used to be a self proclaimed bookworm, but I'm finding re-watching TV series like Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix has now taken over my book time... To socialise I'm an avid tabletop gamer with such titles as Alhambra, Settlers of Catan, Pandemic, Dominion, Small World and Five Tribes in the collection at home. I let out stress by roller skating, walking, swimming and listening to music.
