About me
I’m a creative thinker with a strategic mind. I have worked for the toughest agencies in the UK and handle most industry pressure. I’ve been a designer for over 10 years and having worked in marketing/creative positions that utilise my creative design experience along with my passion to drive projects forward from concept through to implementation and manage a team to deliver its success. Enabling me to make a positive, innovative contribution to the organisation. With my experience as an Art Director and Creative Director, I feel I can deliver a multi-faceted resource to any account or Studio. Having worked with some desirable brands such as Barclaycard, TomTom, Galaxy, Maltesers, Mars, Guinness, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Clarion Events, Britvic, Spotify, Tuborg and AXA Insurance I feel I am conversant with running a successful studio with exceptional client relationship handling.
