About me
I’m a Senior Creative with a broad-ranging experience both in-house and agency; from video to social and retail. I’ve enjoyed working at leading global agencies on international clients ranging from Pepsi to O2, as well as boutique agencies on B2B projects. I’ve also been privileged to lead exceptional teams at some of the biggest brands in-house. I pride myself on achieving a high level of creativity and innovation, while always enabling team members to contribute their individuality to a project. Leading teams of copywriters, art directors, designers and developers across daily work streams to fully integrated campaigns. Creating full user/consumer/shopper journeys, engaging the target audience at every stage. At Expedia’s Vrbo, I lead a team on both global and local work streams, ensuring they are keenly informed by data and insights. My wonderful time at LEGO taught me that play is essential to great work and I will take that ethos with me. I’m now looking for a new opportunity to contribute my hands on creativity.

Work history
    Creative DorectorExpedia Group
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    I have the privilege of leading the UK team of super talented creatives at Vrbo, a world leader in the vacation rental industry and part of the Expedia Group. The team is made up of designers, multilingual copywriters and developers across data insights driven integrated campaigns, social, email, display, video and print. Centred in a test and learn environment using insights and data to improve and influence the product and communications. Reporting into a global CD in the US and collaborating with the US team to launch and align local brands into one global brand in an agile workstream. This meant analysing each country’s brand awareness and presence to minimise drop off in sales and hand hold both partners and consumers in this transition using our various channels. We achieved this while maintaining inspirational creative work.
