Green Dollar Trader Spotlight
The Wairarapa, and our exchange in particular, are fortunate that AJ returned to the region in 2004 for family reasons. Prior to that, his only link to the area was the 6th-form year he spent at Chanel College (then St Joseph’s) in 1972. With particular
strengths in physics, math, chemistry, art and English, his curious and creative mind was never going to allow him to stick long-term to his first job as an NZPO telecoms technician. Instead over the following decades AJ has carved out a colourful career in the various mediums of sound, vision and technology, locally, nationally and overseas.
In 1991 AJ returned to New Zealand, where he worked in electronic/electro-mechanical special effects for South Pacific Pictures, and for various freelance ad agency clients, then began in 1995 in fullltime 2D/3D computer graphics for TV3 and its sister channel C4 TV.
His move to the Wairarapa in 2004 has seen him in demand for much local work, including mayoral and councillor campaign graphics and videos, Aratoi's permanent video exhibition Settling the Land, a 3D walk-through of the Carterton Event Centre prior to construction and numerous national projects.
Of course he was also behind the cover design of our members’ handbook and the design of our WAIS vouchers. This well-travelled website whizz builds his own computers with storage capacity of as much as 3 terabytes. He has also invented several of his own processes for using digital technology in his work, including a method for digitally cleaning up tapes, video and even old 8mm film.
AJ can convert your old tapes into CD audio format and clean up archival film footage into flawless DVD format for modern
audiences. If you are considering setting up a website or want your current one updated, AJ is the man to bring your ideas to fruition in this digital age. He can also video or photograph your events and design flyers, brochures and logos for your business or personal requirements.
