This is me. A coffee-drinking, book-loving, fitness-freak with a passion for design, travel, and gathering as much life experience as possible. Currently in London, I am keen to explore the many different directions that graphic design can lead to, and gain new skills in business, administration and management. I offer great organisational, writing and customer service skills, with an eagerness to learn and be challenged in new areas. With a positive, can-do attitude, I enjoy working both with a team or individually in a busy, creative environment.

I started with Printforce as a casual graphic design/customer service assistant in August, but by November was promoted to Account manager for Ray White (Australia’s largest real estate agent) property marketing in Queensland, Northern New South Wales, South Australia and Northern Territory. My role included providing over-the-phone client service for estate agents using online templates designed to create their own property marketing products and liaising with independent agents to create unique designs for mini mags, brochures and letterbox droppers. I also assisted with organizing the property pages and distribution lists for fortnightly and weekly property magazines for Ray White that included some of the most exclusive homes in Australia. Furthermore, I was responsible for training and guiding new staff members, teaching them how to use both the online templates and SQL software.
This particular restaurant is located on Auckland’s North Shore (New Zealand) and was the second of (currently) 7 restaurants that have opened nationally. I started training with a team to organize the final setup and host the restaurant when they opened the doors to the public. My duties at the front of house involved managing the wait list, taking bookings, greeting and seating customers and taking payment. I also worked on the main floor; taking orders, clearing and cleaning tables and serving food and drink. As the restaurant became busier and more successful, I worked closely with the restaurant manager in training new staff and working on ways to improve the experience for clients and staff alike.
My work at 3LD involved a few large projects such as UI and logo design in which I worked closely with the owner, Jarman. However I also worked independently on smaller projects like business cards, flyers and brochures.
My job at NZMA involved working with a resource development team in creating and re-formatting new student workbooks that were user-friendly and professional. I was also responsible for the continuous improvement of the design and layout of the workbooks, and also communication between the resource team and printer.
