EDUCATION

PERSONAL STATEMENT

Web Development Immersive General Assembly London, UK | 2015

Coming from a design background, I was inspired to move into development by a passion for tech and a desire to engage across a broader section of projects. I recently completed the Web Development Immersive course at General Assembly and am looking for a developer role where I can continue to learn.

BDI (Industrial Design) Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand | 2009-2012 Visual Arts Scholarship Photography NZQA | 2009 NCEA Level 3 (Excellence) A-level equivalent; top 5% nationwide. New Zealand | 2008

SKILL SET Development Backend: Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Node.js, Express, SQL, MongoDB. Frontend: HTML5, CSS + JavaScript (including Angular, jQuery + p5). Other: Agile, collaborative Git.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE General Assembly Web Development Immersive Student | January 2015 - April 2015 Learning web development through spending three months in a high-intensity immersive course has been a thrilling experience. We were taught across backand front-end development, with Ruby, Rails and SQL in the former and HTML5, CSS and Javascript frameworks in the latter. Throughout the course I completed three projects, visible on my website. My final project is a extension of these, using an EEG headset to drive games and visualisations with the user’s thoughts, in a website built with Node.js, Express, AngularJS and MongoDB. Freelance Work UI/UX Design + Photography | 2008 - January 2015

Communications Excellent literacy and numeracy skills and highly proficient in visual, verbal and written modes of communication.

Starting in 2008 with a love of visual design and branching out with my skill set over the subsequent four years, I predominantly engaged in user interface and experience projects. I enjoy working in technical environments, taking broad ideas and turning them into useful and valuable products through a userfocussed methodology. Working from high-level product strategy, through design flows and experience design, to wireframes, prototypes and shipping to production has proven a thrilling way to use industrial design sensibilities in a digital environment.

Design Applications Advanced proficiency in Adobe CC (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects). Adept in Solidworks + 3dsMax.

Over the same period, I was contracted professionally to photograph fashion editorials, portraits, weddings and an assortment of commercial work. Projects I have contributed to have been exhibited publicly in NZ and online in The Creators Project and AdWeek. A selection of work can be found on my website, listed above.

Studio Drawing for initial sketches to mixed media illustrations for presentation and production. Highly consistent results in film and digital photography.

Ponoko Ltd. Production Manager | New Zealand | September 2010 - April 2013

Production Experienced with a range of 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC mills + lathes. Traditional craft skills include casting, soldering + carpentry.

I started working for Ponoko as a production assistant in my second year of university. From January 2012 to April 2013 I was responsible for production management through the New Zealand office. During this time I cut material supply costs by over 25% and reduced the standard order turnaround from 10 days to 48 hours, while working on projects for clients ranging from NASA and Autodesk to domestic users. The position taught me to work with high attention to detail, autonomously and as part of a team, in a Lean Startup environment. It gave a strong knowledge of production technologies, cashflow analysis, supply chain mechanics, negotiation and optimisation, as well as a lasting passion for the creative and environmental possibilities of on-demand manufacturing and generative form. Daniel K. Brown Installations & Exhibitions Principal Research Assistant | Nepal + New Zealand | October 2011 - March 2012 As Associate Professor Daniel Brown’s principal research assistant, my primary role was to assist him in completing a project for the Asian Cultural Council in New York. My initial responsibility was to spend a month in the Kathmandu Valley finding and documenting Vishnu shrines, which narrate Nepalese mythologies relating to the origins of the cosmos. My later role was to integrate these findings into a critical series of renderings and technical drawings.
