Graphic Design

With five years work experience clocked up in the field, Graphic Design is my main career path. I love minimalist design with the use of strong typography, colour and photography to make a statement. Working with some of New Zealand's biggest brands and moving into independent roles, I have quickly become familiar with an array of skills that spread throughout the entire design process. This includes everything from project and client management, through to developing brands from the ground up through a variety of mediums. My strengths lie in branding, print and web design.

Photography

Photography is a fantastic creative tool that links all my skills and moments together. It allows me to capture all my projects and adventures and share them with the world. Having this skill not only allows me to use it creatively for capturing the experiences in my travels and presenting my work, but it also adds another element to my graphic design skill set. It gives me a deeper understanding of what is required when it comes photoshoots, and gives me the option of taking on a photoshoot myself if I feel competent. Best of all, I love the fact that I can capture my creativity in a creative way!

Music

Playing the guitar is my number one hobby. It is the most instant and free forming way of expressing myself creatively. Through playing with people to writing music, it is a truely satisfying and rewarding form of collaboration and creation. I enjoy the challenge of constantly motivating myself to learn more about this complex instrument, which provides many theory and technique related challenges. I mostly enjoy classic rock and heavy metal music, with Pink Floyd and Ghost being my favourite artists.

Art

Art for me is practically any creative material I produce that doesn't relate to my design, music or photography projects. It is a general space that I leave free for any left-field ideas that I think have some potential. After being inspired by some of AJ Fosik's work, I have been exploring 3D sculpting which has lead to a couple of projects that consist of laser-cut plywood sheets that are assembled in layers on top of one another – creating some unique results.

Travel

Travelling the world has become a big part of my life. From solo backpacking to working abroad, I have experienced new cultures that have helped broaden my perspective on life. Travel is a great way to meet and learn from new people, while sharing exciting and new experiences that you'll never forget. As amazing and fun as travel can be, it can also present some difficult challenges that I enjoy overcoming – further building myself as a person and appreciating what I have.

Interests

Apart from everything above, I still have an array of other interests that I pursue and follow. I have a great appreciation for most sports and i'm a massive cricket nut. I also follow football, extreme sports and the WRC from time to time. I love the outdoors and enjoy everything from mountain biking and snow boarding, to hiking and chilling at the beach with a few beers. If I look back at my teenage years, video games definitely dominated that era, so I can't leave that out, even though I don't have much time to play them these days.
