This idea was hatched up by me, Marie-Claire Andrews, newly resident in Carterton and working from home on Dakins Road.  I helped start the angel network in Wellington, I ran FounderCon last year, I am the CEO of Morgo, running a community and conferences for high growth companies in NZ and Australia, co-own MakerSpace NZ and am the COO for the Event Tech Tribe out of the US.

I have been a banker for almost 10 years, run the finances for my family farm and also have just started a business with my husband as logging contractors. I am now looking for an opportunity for myself to run a business, especially one that is focused on enhancing Carterton. I've got big ideas for 3mile - meeting rooms, commuter packages..watch this space!

I have a background in Finance and Accounting and spent 10 years working in tax and corporate roles. Seven years ago I changed completely and moved into editorial and fine art photography. Here I developed a compulsive interest in human connection, storytelling, and  visual marketing, in particular social media. I am currently freelancing in all digital marketing and social media alongside creating educational training channels and courses.

My graphic design career started in 1992 in my parent’s publishing business in Hawke's Bay. I built a design agency, winning the inaugural top Hawke’s Bay Advertising Award for our work developing the brand for Hastings. Me and my partner Brendan, moved to Wellington in 2003 and I became a Graphic Design tutor at Natcoll (now Yoobee School of Design), I continued on to become the HoD and Assistant Principal. I returned to the design industry in 2005 - for Baseline in Lower Hutt as Production Manager, and then to a senior role at Promotus Advertising in Wellington.  The permanent move to the Wairarapa came in 2014, as we already owned a “weekender” in Carterton, it seemed the obvious path to take. Since then I have been working from home, as AskPeter Visual Communication Design. askpeter.co.nz
