About me

I am an entrepreneurial content creator with award winning work spanning the communications spectrum. After cutting my teeth in Scotland, my focus is honed on crafting work which communicates beautifully and convincingly to the world - work which simplifies the complex, and elevates the simple. Above all, I pride myself on pursuing strategies which lead directly to consumer action. I bring a strong commercial awareness to everything I do, as well as a creative commitment.
