  • In May 2018, my former agency, ‘The Creative Arms’, was acquired by Rhapsody Media to head up a new creative department for the agency, build an art team and redesign the brand. As Creative Director of Rhapsody I manage the creative team across London and Poland. Together we concept, create, plan and deliver a strategic vision for clients including Red Bull, Amazon Prime & Fender. I work cross functionally – both art editing, producing photo / video shoots and managing budgets and clients, while juggling multiple print and digital solutions.
