About the E-builders NZ Ltd crew
About Donna: E-Builders NZ Ltd is owned
and operated by Donna Russell, a journalist, sub-editor,
photographer and web designer based in Whangarei, New Zealand.
With more than 25 years working in different media, honing the skills needed
for this business, I can offer a wide range of skills for your project.
I qualified as a journalist at the Auckland University of
Technology in 1981 and have worked as a journalist, features editor, agriculture editor and
garden page editor. I also worked in Perth, Western Australia as
editor of the Master Builders Association's The Builder newspaper
and in London as a sub-editor on the award-winning Building magazine,
where top quality work was always demanded.
On my return to New Zealand, I became agriculture
editor and then a sub-editor at the Northern Advocate newspaper in
Zealand. Over the next 12 years working as a sub-editor, I honed skills in design and layout, graphics,
attention to detail and planning projects.
In 1999 I graduated with a Graduate Diploma in Media Studies from
Massey University, with a special interest in online media. I also
undertook web design training through Auckland University of Technology.
2000 I decided to concentrate on E-Builders NZ Ltd, to develop
my own business in web design, freelance journalism and editing.
a computer column every week, which is now syndicated to three publications. I'm also a tutor in web design for local evening classes.
I'm doing what I love, and this shows in my work.
