More about meI was born in South Africa. I have made it my mission to eat, drink and travel my way around the world. A hunger to learn and experience new things has developed and informed my career as a marketing designer.
I recently graduated from the New Media Design and Web Development program at BCIT in Vancouver. My aim is to develop my skillset to become a more effective project manager. Developing messages and marketing strategies that work for companies is what I want to do.
Prior to my move to Vancouver in 2014, I worked as Head Designer for OfficeTeam Ltd in London, UK, spending seven years as part of their marketing team. I found a true passion for project management and message development.
I strongly believe in collaboration and have proven talented at getting cross-discipline teams to work together successfully. If you want to contact me, I’m on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Breaking out on my own Freelancing 2012-2014
After working in a corporate, B2B environment for seven years, I decided to breakout and work independently. This gave me more creative freedom, but I missed being part of a larger team. It was good to experience the challenge of working project-to-project – but my strengths lie in getting multi-disciplined teams to work together on cross-platform marketing campaigns. This led me to study New Media Design and Web Development at BCIT, a course which I expect to graduate from in April.
Seeing corporate OfficeTeam Ltd 2007 – 2012
During my time at OfficeTeam Ltd (based in London, UK) I progressed from Marketing Assistant to Marketing Executive and was finally promoted to Head of Design in 2009. During my time there, I worked on developing multifaceted campaigns, and ensured cooperation from both the design teams and web teams. In addition I spearheaded OfficeTeam’s rebranding campaign in 2010, and made sure that a solid, recognizable brand was visible in the marketplace, both on and offline.
