Based in our New Zealand office, I work as the Creative Director, collaborating with partners both in NZ and in US on a daily basis.

I specialise in bringing your stories to life through fresh, engaging, intelligent design. I believe in collaborative design: engaging our team and partners, getting the best ideas on the table, and then turning them into something beautiful.

I believe great design comes from the personal touch. The interactions between our team and partners. The care and thought that goes into every design nuance. And making sure the end product is the best it can be. The biggest kick comes from creating something that our partners are proud of.

In 2015, inspired by Steven Burda - the world's most connected person on LinkedIn, I undertook the challenge to try and take his crown. Campaigning for a year GetLinkedTim built an audience through meaningful connections, sharing ideas and stories, and developing relationships with like-minded individuals and businesses. 

Starting with just 253 connections, I built my base audience to over 35,000 unique connections, + a following of 45,000. While it is hard to maintain a relationship with each connection, I have over 200+ conversations continuing with connections on a daily basis regarding TimeZoneOne, idea sharing, and general brand building. With connections worldwide, touching every continent, TimeZoneOne has found the concept to be an amazing success, proving to our client base that LinkedIn is an effective social media tool.

Moreover, it has helped me connect with people who I would not ordinarily meet, giving me the opportunity to learn from the best.

Born and raised in Christchurch, I grew up surrounded by art, literature, and the odd performance, so it was only natural to take these inspiring childhood passions and turn them into a career. I spent my “youth” honing my skills in Australia, the US, and the UK, before returning to NZ to work at TimeZoneOne. Since then, love, marriage, and kids have all grown and now give me more inspiration each day.
