About Miss Potter
After completing my Bachelor of Design with a major in Visual Communication Design and graduating with first class honours, I worked at a small Wellington based creative agency, and then in-house as a marketing designer, before deciding the traditional 9-5 just isn't my jam. I crave the freedom and fast-paced nature of widely varied work. Work and fun are often one and the same for me! In 2013 I learned the word 'startup'. Now I spend my days as Chief Operating Officer of Leaping Tiger, a startup I co-founded in 2014.
I'm a self-proclaimed perfectionist with far too many interests. I love CrossFit, gaming, and have a lifelong passion for typography and writing. I'm a self-confessed social media addict; you can usually find me spending way too much time on Twitter!
Always doing something...
