Hey, I'm Anais. (That rhymes.)

29 / Kiwi in Aus / Creative.

Tāmaki Makaurau β€”> Meanjin β€”> Naarm.

I’m here to make cool ideas for good causes with great people. Currently doing so with Katelyn Testa – my hilarious creative other half.
From directors to casting, it’s important to create authentic, interesting work that’s diverse and inclusive from the inside out. Making stuff that means something, you know?

I won a Grand Prix at 26, speak on industry panels, podcasts, and at universities, plus I judge awards, tutor AWARD School and volunteer as National Creative Lead on Assisterhood: Australia and Aotearoa’s leading mentorship program for underrepresented people in comms.

Even after almost ten years of making ads, ‘One Less Present‘ is still my favourite idea. It didn’t win a Lion, but it did raise over $300K across three Christmases to help abused Aussie kids. If you’re still reading, why not have one less coffee and go chuck them a fiver at actforkids.com.au

Cheers.
