About me

 

Hello! For the past 14 years I have worked with great companies within Johannesburg, South Africa, in the TV, 3D Animation & Post Production industries. I have gained a vast amount of creative & management experience with my roles as Traffic Manager, Studio Manager, 3D Animator & Designer. My interests lie with a variety of industries: TV, Fashion, Retail, Gaming, Kids related, Digital & Branding. I enjoy overlooking the creative process in its entirety, leading a team & contributing to ideas. I’m easy to get along with, enjoy meeting new people, adapt quickly to new challenges, have a quirky sense of humour & am a geek-mom at heart. My extensive creative career (including freelance design & creating jewellery in my spare time) has helped me understand the process, time & effort that goes into creative projects. I look forward to building a career with a brand I love and a team to be proud of. Let’s work together!
