I’ve been managing Facebook pages since the age of 13. When I was 20 years old I had graduated in a Diploma in Travel and Tourism.

I am a self taught motivated social media marketer. 

My background includes contracting for social media channel management for Hastings District Council and Napier City Council; advising Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.
