Kyle Kivett

I am a hardworking individual who strives to bring enthusiasm and creativity to everything I do. My biggest professional passions are writing and design. With a degree in Journalism specializing in news and editorial writing, I also have a disposition for analytical thinking and strong research skills. For a number of years, I have worked for creative agencies and on design teams in Asia which has given me the privilege of working in diverse and intercultural environments. My other skills include generating fresh and creative ideas, communicating well with colleagues, and using collaboration to get the best result for any project.
