Born in the 80's, you could say I was the typical girl next door who loved nothing more than being stuck in the middle of everything and anything that allowed me to be physically active and sport grass-stained knees. I suppose that goes a long way in explaining my soccer obsession and my family can testify to my childhood dream of becoming a professional soccer player, among other things ;-)
However when I grew up and the time came to focus on a 'proper career', I intially pursued one of my other passions - language. Opting to study a well-rounded Arts Degree has I think, in hindsight, has helped expose me to a variety of fields that I now design for. While at university I discovered the world of web technology and haven't looked back. After graduating from NUIG with a Bachelor of Arts (International) in German and Information Technology, I obtained a H.Dip. in Systems Analysis (with a particular focus on design & multimedia) a year later. I've always been very artistic, so I guess it's no surprise.
I've been told I'm super passionate about what I do, so in many ways work rarely feels like a typical job. The first 4 years of my career was spent working in a small design studio and that experience was priceless. However I soon realised that home is where the heart is; so I decided to relocate and take on the challenge of setting up my own business. I'm happy to say that 5 years on I'm still going strong.
Other amazing experiences I've enjoyed over the years would include studying at the Otto-Friedrich Universität in Bamberg, Germany for a year and spending some time working and travelling around America. Being artistic at heart I jump at every opportunity to get creative, whether that's with a camera, brush, pencil or accoustic guitar. When I'm not busy with all of the above I love movie nights, music, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
Anyhow, enough about me...
How I work
By now you might be hearing drums rolls, champagne corks popping and doors opening...but wait! We're not quite there yet. After artwork has been printed, websites have been launched and everything is up and running, they'll most likely require further promotion, management and on-going monitoring and tweaking. Sadly, marketing campaigns don’t become successful overnight. What use is a website that customers can’t find or a flyer that few have seen? Don’t worry though; I’m not going to disappear like a rabbit in a hat. If you need training, maintenance, support or just some simple advice then I’m here...I like to build long term relationships with my clients.
