About

A multi-disciplinary creative, I relish the challenge of leading diverse teams to meet creative challenges, whether they be in print, 3D, motion graphics, or software development - or a fusion of all of those disciplines. My visual and written work has been featured in and referenced by the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Design Week, Monotype, Brand Perfect, and the Spanish Federation of Orthopaedics journal. I've been employed as a design consultant at Soluis, one of the UK's leading design visualisation studios. With a global client base including major name construction and architecture practices to oil,gas and civic management consultancies, Soluis provides astounding visuals,animation and bespoke software for iOS devices. I work between teams to make sure that we're offering our absolute best to each and every one of our clients. While lecturing at UCOL in New Zealand's most innovative design degree department, I equipped students with the skills they needed to thrive in the marketplace. Those skills ranged from vector illustration and print output preparation, to ePub creation, use of the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, and creation of engaging motion graphics. I also strongly encouraged thorough research into current practice, and to adopt a "what would the client think of this?" mindset. At Marshall Creative Agency, also in NZ, I provided freelance copywriting for a variety of web, mobile app, and print projects. SEO and market aware, I'm an enthusiastic and insightful writer with quick turnaround and an excellent client mediation skill set.
