Chris Hetem is a freelance Designer & Product Developer from Tauranga

Hey, I'm Chris 👋 – a designer, product builder, & digital creator experienced in creating software products end-to-end – from discovery through to delivery.

Having worked across the full product lifecycle, I have a varied and unique skillset that I bring to my work leaning on lessons learned from my experiences in product development, customer success, problem discovery, and UX/UI design.

Driven by my curiousity, I love learning new things and solving challenging problems and rely on my natural ability to adapt to navigate the ambiguity that comes with designing and building new things.

I believe you can never ask too many questions, no ideas are silly, and that play is an important part of work.

In my spare time you can find me chasing surf around the country's beautiful coastline, playing disc golf, or baking a fresh loaf of bread & cooking up delicious meals with my family.
