I am a creative and results driven MBA graduate seeking new possibilities in the digital marketing industry. For the past 3 years I have been a sole trader specialising in digital marketing solutions including web and social channels. I understand financial sustainability but can think sideways and beyond “this is the way its always been done”. I have experience working with diverse clients and am not afraid to work with demographics outside my knowledge base.
I am looking to move into a team environment.
5 quick facts about me
I love digital project work and am not afraid to work with demographics outside my comfort zone. Breaking digital projects down step by step and seeing it through to finalisation is highly satisfying for me. I have experience in quick turn around, mid and long term projects, including those requiring multiple suppliers. I can think nimbly and stay focused on a goal. As a sole trader I’ve missed working in teams and it is something I look forward to enjoying again in the future.
I finished my MBA in June 2020 with a specialisation in Marketing, achieving a Distinction grade or higher in the majority of subjects. This is in addition to a Grad Cert in Commerce (2017) and a BA Communication (2004). This combination results in strategic business skills and the ability to articulate effectively in verbal and written communication. I’ve used my sole trader venture to apply marketing theory into practical solutions.
I have over 20 years experience building and maintaining websites and I’ve always kept up with the latest trends and standards in design and platform innovation. However, I’ve never lost focus on the needs of the clients through solid user interface design (UI) and ensuring information is easy to access and satisfying for the end consumer (UX). All my websites have come with training so the client feels empowered to control their own online presence.
I have been using Photoshop for a crazy number of years. My introduction to the program was version 4.0 released in 1996, where I placed a layer with a cow on top of a field and added some text. That was it. I was hooked. For many years I held a membership with the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) and would love to see the organisation grow and thrive on domestic soil.
I am ready for the next challenge. My preference for a permanent position and I am happy to move, or work from home, for the right fit. I look forward to working with a team again where I can use my skills in strategic creative direction, marketing and communication. I have built this website to showcase my portfolio of skills, bring forward opinions and offer tutorials. I want to show I can talk the talk AND walk the walk.
