About me
Strategic and conceptual lead creative for live and virtual experiences. I'm interested in using technology grounded in humanity and empathy to engage, inspire, and open up new ways of thinking. Often leaning on my multidisciplinary background to explore and expand innovative solutions that aren't necessarily what's expected. I have over 10 years’ experience in immersive and brand experiences, my work highly influenced by my earlier career in theatre, with storytelling and human behaviour at the forefront of all creative thinking. I am always looking to collaborate with new and inspiring people, and available for freelance and contract work - please get in touch.
