About me
I’m Chris – a freelance creative working across all levels of creative thinking and implementation. I bring with me a versatile, well-rounded skill set and an understanding of a broad range of disciplines. A strong, methodical thinker, I genuinely enjoy solving problems, taking in the bigger picture before tackling details, which I believe ends in better results overall. I run my own company – DIRT named after my own philosophy around dirt being the ideal starting point for growth and creation, reflecting my approach to tackling creative challenges from the bottom up. I’m adaptable, picking up new skills easily and am always happy to pass on what I learn to those around me, engendering a supportive environment. I am hands-on with getting things done and have lead and managed teams both in-house and as a freelancer. I aim to make sure that working with me is easy, fun and meets everyone’s goals. I’m dead friendly, I do love a coffee (or three) and if we work together I’ll even save one for you. Another titbit is that I can sometimes be found on the London comedy circuit performing stand-up. Anything else, feel free to ask.
