About me
With over six years of experience working in London-based creative agencies, I have worked with clients ranging from; Nike, Coca-Cola, Jack Daniels, and the BBC. Now working as a freelancer, I sit at the intersection between Design, Strategy and Copywriting for an array of clientele. I like to work with the ambitious and the fun. People and brands who look at the world differently and try to break the status-quo. I want to take your unique outlook, develop it and put your personality front and centre and show it off for everybody to see. Weird is wonderful so let's stand out together.
