About me

At the weekends I’m usually found spending time with my young family, tinkering with motorbike engines or browsing vintage watch shops, but during the week - and the odd weekend when needed - I’m a dynamic, creative and hard-working professional with 9 years of branded content and partnerships experience under my belt. Over the course of my career I’ve made the conscious effort to expose myself to all sides of the digital industry, gathering various skills and experience from media owners, creative, design, influencer marketing, social media, content production and events management. This unique combination of experience has given me a very broad understanding of the industry and it’s many facets, which in turn has allowed me to think laterally and use my skills to excel in the brand partnerships space. 5 of my 9 years have been spent building content solutions for brands such as ALDI, McDonald’s, The North Face, New Balance and Uber.
