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.
Projects credited in
  • Virgin Atlantic — The Secret Travel AgentTo mark the launch of Virgin Atlantic’s new route from London to Tel Aviv, we built a travel agent in the heart of the city’s Jaffa Market and gave locals the chance to haggle for flights to London.
  • Regent Street — Hey Alexa!London’s iconic Regent Street wanted to be the go-to destination over the Christmas period. To cut-through the festive noise, as shoppers flocked online on Cyber Monday, we launched ‘Hey Alexa’, a tongue-in-cheek campaign that celebrated the virtues of IRL shopping with Regent Street’s very own real-life Alexa [Chung].
  • ibis — ibis Musicibis, one of the UK’s leading budget hotel brands, briefed us to turn up the volume and make some noise about its music-led brand proposition in 2019. They didn’t want just a one-hit-wonder creative spike, but a 12-month integrated comms program, spanning PR, social and influencers. Our goal was to amp-up ibis’ passion for music, positioning its hotels as destinations for unique music experiences, as well as great stays, with the end goal of driving bookings and building brand loyalty.
