About me

ECD / Creative Director, Copywriter & Director with over 20 years experience. Multiple gongs at D&AD, Cannes Lions, One Show, Tomorrow Awards, Webby's, Lovies, Eurobest, LIA, FWA, Creative Circle, & many more. BAFTA Best Director nomination. Worked with my creative partner and wife Gemma Butler since 1996. We believe in ideas, entertainment and useful services. In our time we’ve created music videos, TVCs, posters and press ads. But the majority of our work has focused around digital media. Because in digital we can experiment, entertain and take part in conversations.

 We can ask our audience to interact. 
 We can surprise them with the new, the wonderful, the unexpected. 

And hopefully we can help people.
