About me
I’m a senior branded content creative, working across all aspects of the process from the initial strategy and concept, right through to client presentations, storyboarding, pre production, art directing shoots and post production.

Projects
  • STAR ON DISNEY+: THE BIG BINGE
    STAR ON DISNEY+: THE BIG BINGEMy key objective for Big Binge was to make the LADbible Group audience aware of the breadth of range within Star by creating relatable moments around it. I created a LADbible Group original series where we got peers from the LAD audience, as well as a few well-known faces, to watch nothing but Star on Disney+ with their friends and family, creating genuine affinity for the new streaming service through relatable moments.

  • MICROSOFT: DO GREAT THINGS
    MICROSOFT: DO GREAT THINGSMicrosoft challenged LADbible Group to raise awareness and drive demand for Windows laptops in a Gen Z audience by breaking down barriers, and empowering people to do great things. So, I created a mini content series championing real people that have unlocked their potential by harnessing the power of social media and their Microsoft Laptop to achieve great things from their side hustles. I directed each shoot remotely via Zoom due to the pandemic, with all three going live on LADbible. I al
  • STRONGBOW DARK FRUIT: THE DARK HORSE OF FASHION WEEK
    STRONGBOW DARK FRUIT: THE DARK HORSE OF FASHION WEEKStrongbow Dark Fruit decided to launch a streetwear fashion capsule and came to LADbible to promote the launch. Our response; crashing London Fashion Week with the dark horse of fashion, of course.
  • WRAP: TRASH TUNES
    WRAP: TRASH TUNESWrap came to LADbible in a bid to make people aware of what you can and can't recycle on the run up to Recycle Week. It can be a pretty difficult thing to remember at best, so, I thought a catchy song would help ingrain it into peoples minds for good.
