About me

 

As an Art Director I have worked in agencies such as WCRS, Publicis, CDP, McCanns, Bates and Ogilvy One and as a Creative Director at JWT and The Reality Shop. I am experienced in coming up with big ideas and translating them into 360 executions from TV to digital working individually or as a team. I have worked on a variety of accounts in various sectors but, over the years, I have built up particular expertise in the retail, health and automotive sectors.
