Working in a creative industry can sometimes be very stifling for someone when adapting to work projects, teams, and environments. However, my ability to utilise changes and alter my skills has generated a holistic approach when it comes to being an Art Director. The wide breadth of experiences that I have acquired as an Art Director, Stylist, Producer and Writer has granted me so many advantages with any task or project that I have been presented with. I work with endless energy, flexibility, an open mind, and care to provide successful and positive results from conceptualizing big paid account/editorial content. All the above have been published across multi-media platforms that originate from many ideas decks either presented to magazines, clients, or Creative Directors. My freelance career has shaped me into an individual that understands all the necessary paths that are required for an Art Director’s success that spans across styling, production, journalism, casting, e-commerce, still-life, moving image, campaigns, mentoring assistants and celebrity/influencer clientele.
