Up until 2008, I was a student at Mount Albert Grammar School, which I graduated from once completing Year 13. In my final year of NCEA (Level 3) I passed with Merit. My subjects were Design, Photography, Painting, Music and English - all of which I also have Level 2 qualifications in. I completed three semesters of a BFA at Auckland University (Elam School of Fine Arts) before I realized it wasn't for me, and am now doing a BA in English and Philosophy, also at the University of Auckland, still pursuing art and design as a freelance career.

I'm an enthusiastic person, and feel confident in my ability to bring a positive and fun attitude to any workplace. I never shy away from hard work.
