About me

I'm an experienced visual communicator with a hybrid set of skills in PR and integrated communications. This diverse skill set allows me to understand the bigger picture and come up with creative solutions that answer to commercial briefs and strategy, through a variety of mediums. Over the years I've had the pleasure of working on internationally known brands such as IKEA, Disney & Marvel Studios, Nespresso, Pernod Ricard (Absolut Vodka, Mumm Champagne, Chivas), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (Fiat, Jeep, Alfa Romeo) and Mentos, to name a few. I strive to creative innovative solutions, backed by tangible insights, all solidified via a fluid visual narrative that maximises efficiency and brand purpose.
