Jay Phillips

Air Traffic Controller

Studio & Finance Management


Jay loves all things creative, youth and culture and as our Air Traffic Controller, she combines these superpowers to be our front and centre chief organiser. She is in charge of all things coming in and heading out of our studio; new jobs, accounts receivable, administration, studio schedules, client liaising, and workflow management for the team - our lead Finisher!


The downtime is spent being even more creative with her adorable tamaiti Caius including working on one of her many renovation projects or refurbishing her latest piece of vintage furniture. She doesn’t mind mucking in and getting her hands dirty and thoroughly enjoys baking, much to the delight of the Firebrand team!

Jay is also studying Mahi Toi, exploring her artistic roots, and spending many weekends out at the local Whare or Marae around Otepoti.
