Our Team

The magic makers

Our team is made up of complementary people and skills that all work together to help Watershed deliver great work across a wide range of tasks and clients.

As believers in being honest to our clients and each other, we enjoy an open environment where everyone is treated equally, likes walking in the door in the morning, can speak freely and knows when it’s OK to switch off work mode and be a parent, family member, teammate, athlete, drummer, party attendee or just do nothing.

Heres our team at the moment…
