Producer, Scarlet City Studios, February 2012 – Present
Scarlet City Studios aims to be the premiere Christian Game Studio in the world. To do this we are building an online virtual world for kids that is based on the storyline of the Bible.
As the producer I oversee the entire product (The Aetherlight) which includes managing the Game Director, Art Director, World builders, as well as being involved with the strategic marketing, branding, and all forms of development. My role also places me as the ‘2IC’ in the studio, and as such I “run the studio” on a day to day basis.
Project Manager, Legacy Projects, Mar 2010 – Feb 2011
Legacy Projects is a change management company who specialise in non-profit reshaping. I was involved in a major overhaul of an learning organisation which was founded by Robert Laidlaw in 1938. My role here involved the overall analysis, ideation and strategy for the redesign, as well as the oversight and management of all the technical development.

Director, Frenetik Design, 2007-Present
Frenetik Design is a side project that I started for my design work, most of which has been web development. Clients have included a screen printing business, two environmental engineering firms, two restaurants, education consultants, and a local church. Other work has included social-media consulting for AGM123, which included constructing, managing and maintaining their social media presences.
Research Technician, Auckland Liver Transplant Unit, 2009-2010
I completed my MSc (Biomedical Science) in 2010 and graduated with First Class Honours. This involved 6 months of ‘wet-lab’ work (test tubes, white coats, etc) but also 6 months of ‘dry-lab’ work using the latest and most powerful computational software to analyse the evolution and mutation rate in Hepatitis B Virus.
Graphics Manager, showribbons 2000 Ltd, 2008 (part time)
My role at ShowRibbons 2000 was to create art work for ribbon screen prints using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I also assisted them with promotional material, including building their website (which unfortunately they have since removed) as well as getting my hands dirty and doing some screen printing myself!
