Website Design

Using guidelines from a client, I build brand-appropriate websites that are informative, easy to navigate and user-centered. I specialize in front-end website design on the content management system, WordPress. My signature design style is a "neat and nifty" layout that is responsive and user-friendly. With the target audience search enquiries in mind, I use the SEO software, Yoast, to maximize a website’s visibility.

Event coordination

Over the past decade I have organised numerous events from conferences to international tours. I love it when a great plan comes together.

Marketing and sales

I am passionate about marketing, because it is the hub of any organisation. Finance, human resources, operations and sales all spill around marketing. Starting with analysis, working out a strategy, coordinating tactics and measuring results are all areas I enjoy. Then of course there is the element of human interaction and public speaking that I crave.

Copy writing and copy editing

I wrote marketing video documentary scripts and facilitated the video capturing- and editing of several promotional short films. I had a travel blog and love editing website copy or creating content for company websites.

Graphic Design

I am an Adobe Creative Cloud member and have intermediate skills in Illustrator and Photoshop. I like  the creative process of brochure and logo design.


I am passionate about creative communication through intelligent design. I love team collaboration and thrive on continuous learning.

In my short lifetime I have had the privileged to travel to 32 different countries. I get excited about new challenges and I am forever looking forward to expand my horizons.

My ultimate priority is providing the best for my family (wife and baby), which is why I am extremely motivated to be successful.
