1- What do you do at Graphix?
My title is Customer Services/ Receptionist but I do a bit of everything.
2 – How long have you been working for Graphix?
Ahhhmm just over a year and a half- time flies when you are having fun!
3- Tell us about your theatre life
I caught the theatre bug about 10 years ago- and have been crazy about it ever since.
I have been in productions for West Coast Theatre, Tansi Productions, Flashmob entertainment and New Plymouth Operatic Society. I can be found anywhere from up on the stage to out the back sewing costumes.
Most recently I have played Columbia in the Rocky Horror Picture Show and I have been seconded on to the board of management for NP Operatic Society for 2021.
4- What is the most challenging part of your job?
There is so much to learn in the world of printing, it a bit of a challenge to keep up with all the new information!
Everyday we get a different question that keeps on our toes and always learning.
5- What is your favourite part of your job?
The team here at Graphix! When you spend all day with people you get a very special bond and form your own little family dynamic.
They know how to make me laugh, and I think being able to laugh together helps us get through the stressful days.
6- Which has been the most rewarding sign writing/print technique to learn?
I took over the promotional product enquiries not long after I started, and that has been a very rewarding area to learn and work in. I have really enjoyed helping people find the right product for their branding needs and seeing their face light up when they receive their products. One of my favourite projects was learning about sublimation printing while helping the Taranaki Iwi organise their scarves and ties.
7- What are you reading/watching at the moment?
Well at the moment I am involved with NPOS 2021 production of Wicked The Musical- so I get to watch that every night
In my spare time, I have been watching “The Crown” and “Schitts Creek” on Netflix – both very addicting, and I just started reading “You Will Get Through This Night” by Daniel Howell.
