    More About Me

    I'm creative and enthusiastic with a wide variety of skills. I'm always up for a new challenge which is why I started my own business doing graphic design, custom sign design & installation, landscape design and landscape construction upon being made redundant last year. I love music and play in a band with friends in a shed in the country on a weekly basis. I love cooking, sailing, fishing and the outdoors, but there's nothing I like more than to lie on the couch with a good book.

    My Background

    I've got a BA in design and I've worked various jobs in locations around New Zealand and the globe since I graduated. These have included a stint baking muffins and teacakes in a cafe, a period working in a snowboard rental shop, and some time writing movie reviews and reporting on club rugby for a community newspaper. But most of the time I was working as a graphic designer. By the end of 2005, I was sick of being stuck behind a computer all day and I felt like I needed a change. I wanted to work outdoors and decided to go landscaping. I did that for three and a half years. Now I've taken my eclectic skills and I'm trying to have the best of both worlds, combining time behind the computer designing with the hands on work of landscape construction - and seeing my designs become reality. Of course it doesn't always work out the way you plan - I'll take on whatever work I can do to pay the bills - and so I'm presently painting my third house in six months.

    People Describe Me As

    Honest, reliable, hard working & friendly

    I'm Proud Of

    Being a dad.

    The Way I Work

    I'm all about customer service. If the customer knows what they want then I'll formulate a plan to get the job done in the most efficient and cost effective way I can think of, and then get the job done for them. If they don't know what they want, then I'll work with them to come up with a concept that they like. Then I'll work out the details, iron out any kinks and put the concept into action and see it through till completion, liaising with other contractors or service providers as required. If something goes wrong along the way, I'll make sure the problem gets fixed, and smartly.
