ClanMouse was the first company to create fully digital interactive arts focused publication in New Zealand.

Our learnings from experimenting with new media allowed us the sell some of the ideas generated to SME’s and large corporates. One of the key skills I learned at ClanMouse was the ability to manage a digital business.


On arriving in NZ from Qatar, I added academic qualification to my professional experience with AUT's world renowned Bachelors of Visual Arts degree. Additionally I worked as an Art Director at the University itself, producing the weekly student magazine.
