I have recently completed a PhD in Marketing at Lincoln University. I have worked in a variety of corporate roles in New Zealand, The UK and Australia. My most recent roles, before returning to study, were in e-commerce and online advertising.

In my spare time I enjoy the beach, a nice bottle of red wine and the avoidance of gardening duties.
