About me

I'm director and co-founder of Moledro Digital, a digital consultancy with unique experience advising clients across the entertainment, FMCG and professional services industries. We create connections for our clients that resonate with their customers and audiences. We do this by telling engaging stories and creating meaningful and shareable digital experiences. As a digital strategist, I have 10+ years’ experience running digital campaigns and communications both client and agency side with a particular expertise in building up engaged online communities and running innovative digital initiatives that get results. Before founding Moledro Digital I was the Head of Digital at Capitol Records UK (part of the worlds leading music company Universal Music Group) and before that was Digital Manager at Sony Music Entertainment. I've planned and executed digital campaigns for some of the world’s biggest entertainment brands and public figures including Sam Smith, 5 Seconds Of Summer, One Direction, Little Mix, Jennifer Lopez, Leona Lewis, Olly Murs, Anastacia, Chris Rea and IL DIVO to name just a few, as well as for leading FMCG brands including Ben Sherman, Lyle & Scott, Farah Clothing and Original Penguin.

  • Moledro Digital is a digital consultancy with unique experience advising clients across the entertainment, FMCG and professional services industries. We create connections for our clients that resonate with their customers and audiences. We do this by telling engaging stories and creating meaningful and shareable digital experiences. We work with our clients to define their business objectives and advise how digital marketing solutions can be used to achieve these objectives. We consult across a range of digital verticals including digital strategy, campaigns and bespoke brand activations, influencer marketing, digital advertising and social media. The concept behind Moledro Digital is simple; to combine the contrasting experience of our founders within the highest echelons of the entertainment and professional services sectors to give our clients the best of both. Namely, the energy and creativity of the UK’s entertainment industry and the high standards of client care, commercial awareness and strategic sense of the UK’s professional services sector.
