About me

One philosophy degree taught me to always look for ways to see things differently. Eight years working in full service agencies taught me that the magic of strategy lies in the ability to make people believe in it. I blend the pot-stirring, opportunity spotting and problem solving nature of a strategist with the room reading, big picture seeing, get shit done mentality of a project manager. I work with global brands to create stories that resonate and help bring them to life outside of a powerpoint.
