About me

I’ve always had a love of advertising; as soon as I went to art college I knew ‘this is what I want to do’ and today, I enjoy it even more. Why? Because technology has enabled us to connect brands and people like never before, to create ideas that truly engage across a variety of media and platforms, while bringing diverse talent together: creatives, designers, strategists, developers, producers, to name but a few. As a Creative Director, I get to build bespoke teams around me to solve business challenges through transformative ideas, from a simple social post to product innovations and brand experiences. It’s this collaboration and diverse thinking that continues to excite me, every single day.
