I believe a job cannot simply be a means to pay the bills and its always been a goal of mine to create original work that ignites the imaginations of those it touches. I am always enthusiastic to work with a hardworking team and to have a good time along the way.

I am a 25 year old Industrial Designer living in Wellington, New Zealand. Since completing my degree at Massey University here in the capital I have been working as a contractor in the film industry. I have had numerous roles and positions throughout and they've included Model making, CNC machining and designing for film and tv show productions both locally and Internationally. I am always wanting to push myself, learn new things and I am excited to see where my design career will take me.
I have always been an 'outside of the box' thinker and I believe it to be my greatest value in a team. I am however very self driven and persistent in proving to myself that I can do the best work possible.
Since beginning my degree I have been fascinated with how design can capture the attention and provoke thought in an audience. Through my interest in performance such as theater and film I strive for my designs to create a fresh experience. I believe that now more than ever, our products, brands and we ourselves are struggling for identity in a growing and blending crowd. This requires us to be more creative and more willing to put in the background work that will never see true recognition or appreciation.
