Christian Geyer, Front End Developer

Christian works Monday to Thursday for The Cut, and on Fridays he is a talented designer and craftsman of timber furniture.

Sajith Jayweera, Shopify Designer

Saj has been with us for quite a few years now and in that time, he has become a specialised Shopify designer. He knows our go-to ecommerce platform inside and out.

Jayden lives south of river, is a self-confessed coffee addict and football fiend, following Central Coast in Oz, and the Bundesliga league internationally.

David Marshall, Graphic Designer

Dave is a talented Graphic Designer who leads our Logo and Brand Design and Advertising projects, as well as dabbling with digital design every now and then.

Dave is highly skilled at bringing new brands to life, and giving extreme makeovers to tired old brands that need a refresh.

Dave is a hardcore skater and had a massive year in 2017, getting married to Kaylene and the two are happily expecting their first bubba in March 2018.

Amanda Zampogna, Project & Social Media Manager

Amanda also coordinates Graphic Design and Advertising projects, working closely with our clients, and Dave and Ben. Amanda is a massive fan of Dave Grohl and his gang of Foofighters.

Mae Chau, Bookkeeper

Last, but definitely not least (because she holds the purse strings!), Mae has been The Cut’s Bookkeeper almost since the very beginning. Mae does an awesome job helping Scott and Ben manage our financials and tuck enough away for the ever-greedy tax man.

Mae works with us two days a week, and the rest of the  time she works for other clients, takes care of her husband and daughter and enjoys travelling around Australasia.
