Erica Brooks is the Urban Aviatrix, named for the international travel I used to do for work (less glamorous - and more gruelling - than it sounds!).
Born & raised on Scotland’s wild west coast; grown on Wiradjuri & Gadigal country; now tauiwi in Aotearoa, with the winds of Ruapehu and Raukawa Moana in my hair.
A designer by training and trade, for many years I worked full time in the arts, entertainment and events industries, resulting in a diverse body of work over 20 years of practice - from brand management, marketing, media and events production to business development, sales, start ups, and work on set in New Zealand’s film industry.
This broad experience reflects my multi-disciplinary interests and abilities, woven together by common threads of story and empathy. I’m a firm believer in business as a holistic enterprise - when we build into those around us, we create strong, healthy teams that positively impact the world around them. To this end, wherever I am and whatever I’m doing I foster collaborative, creative environments where ideas flourish and people feel nourished.
