Office Manager & Research Assitant
As part-time office assistant in the fun Auckland office Lydia works under the guidance of UK office manager Sophie Wallman and reports to senior consultant, Jooles Clements. Her role is to provide administrative support for the Auckland team and general office duties for MHM’s expanding Australasian arm.
Lydia has a diverse background in the creative industries and has a lot of contact with the local visual arts community. Experience with print production has given her a love for style guides and an appreciation for correct typography. She enjoys organising suppliers, getting things done and is always ready to assist when and where required.
Before joining the team at MHM Lydia spent many years as an account manager in an advertising agency and has worked for the Auckland Art Gallery and the University of Auckland. She has a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts).
Always on hand to help out artistic friends with exhibition catalogue design, layout and production. Most recently produced and hand-bound her father's memoirs – from whom she inherited a love of running. Has a craft sideline in ceramics, is a founding member of the Franklin Road Knitting Club and spends an awful lot of time worrying about her young daughter's education.
