About me

I bring almost two decades of experience working in top agencies such as R/GA New York, Cheil Worldwide and BBDO New York. Alongside integrated work for clients such as Samsung, Chanel, Canon, Unilever, Nike and Unicef. I also have huge experience beyond traditional media, having turned my hand successfully to everything from reality TV to philanthropic gaming. My focus is squarely on work - rallying a creative spirit to conjure succinct, well-crafted ideas that stand out and cut-through.
