What’s your role at Capital E? I’m the Relationship Development Coordinator, so I’m always chatting to teachers making sure they know what we’re up to, and that we’re doing the cool stuff that they need us to be doing.

What’s the best thing about Capital E? Working with such a colourful team, and seeing the positive impact we have on all the awesome kids and young people we are lucky enough to have in Aotearoa.

What is your first memory of being creative? There was a kids’ show in the UK called Art Attack, and Neil Buchanan showed you how to make a paper mache gargoyle. I don’t remember mine looking even slightly gargoyle-like (I’m not sure I even got to the paper mache stage, there was lots of sellotape), but it was fun!

Why is creativity so important? Creativity is unique to every person, there’s no right answer! This means you can do whatever you want and no one can tell you that you’re wrong :). I like that.

If you could create your own crayon, what would it be and describe the colour.

The colour of the scales on Marcus Pfister’s Rainbow Fish. It would look different depending on the weather and time of day, but it would always be shiny.

Create a picture of yourself, you have two minutes!
