      • Providing creative concepts, design and visualisation of potential commercial partnerships across The Football Associations assets, including the England teams, The FA Cup, Wembley Stadium and the grassroots game. Combining my love of football, it’s culture with my creative experience, I have a unique insight to help sell the game through the creation of an extensive suite of photographic content for the commercial teams presentations, often delivering at short notice. These have helped to secure new partnerships deals with BT, LG, PayPal, Google Cloud, Barclays, that ultimately benefit grassroots football.
