Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, in the US, Cindy Staudt moved to New Zealand
12 years ago and has completely forgotten how to say the words oregano, garage, and
cookie. She has worked in the US government (frightening to see Dick Cheney’s portrait
every day!), in a NZ publishing house, in tertiary education, and now in the private sector
with a focus on public health and education.
She originally trained as an editor, but has also worked as a technical writer, content
developer, and desktop publisher. Having a keen interest in both words and graphics led to a
largely self-taught design career, and she now works as a user interface designer at
Streamliners in Christchurch.
Off duty, she enjoys playing tennis, reading, and watching Marvel movies with her two boys.
