About me
I am a highly experienced, innovative and smart creative content director with a passion for storytelling. With 15 years in the industry at a senior level, I’ve learned that it helps to be versatile.   I lead teams, but I also roll up my sleeves when the project needs it. I love creating a strategic vision, but I’ll happily dive in and write copy as well. With my journalistic background, incisive and original storytelling is at the heart of everything I do and I love challenging convention and going the extra mile to deliver results.   I regularly present to board-level clients and enjoy helping them build successful campaigns and experiences for their customers. I have successfully helped myriad businesses with their digital and print transformations through the organisation of content strategy development, large-scale rebranding projects, global events and asset production, all supported by extensive market research and deep-dive data. I work across many different types of media, including films, animation, CGI, print and social. I collaborate with writers, editors, strategists, film directors and producers, account managers, DOPs and stills photographers. my role as Creative Content Director, I am responsible for managing and shaping every piece of content that flows through the creative team. Above all, I constantly strive to push the boundaries of “what’s possible”. Every single piece of content, big or small, should surprise and delight, and work extremely hard to build a conversation and engage audiences.
