    No regulars from NZ on DF as far as I can recall, one of the moderators Chris lived & worked in design in NZ for 5 years.
     
  9. Yes i believe i have met Chris on occasion as he was working for Price Waterhouse Coopers in Auckland then tried down here in the Napier branch. it has been years though.

    Yeah a couple of months ago if my memory serves me right, I've just sent him a quick PM to let him know about this thread as he's not had much time to be active on here lately, sure he'll stop by soon :)
     
  13. Would be great to get back in touch. tell me greg if i have a few scouts looking for some of my students work and want to pull them from the course early. do you think they would thrive as designers?

    Hello Brian :up:
     
  16. I am honored to be on a site specifically created for GD's and WSD's if there is anything anyone needs help with let me know.
     
  17. Hello Brian.. Sorry to say that I don't remember you at all (to be honest i've been trying to forget New Zealand for a long time now, some very bad memories for me)... did you work in PWC in Napier or in Auckland, and in which department? I don't really remember meeting you in the Auckland office..there weren't many of us in that office.
     
  18. I Worked in Auckland for a time but not for PWC i worked for Bank of New Zealand and asked for a review of designers for our new site, your name came up surprised you do not remember everyone has bad memories about New Zealand it's hard to get rid of them. but i bet you already know this. but can it really be that bad?
     
  19. I would say that burying your own daugher and getting almost killed multiple times by your ex-girlfriend makes things pretty terrible personally.
