About me

I’m a strategist who’s deeply passionate about leveraging the power of brands and technology to not only inspire people, but help them make sense of today’s complex world. I’m also a huge believer in the power of empathy to solve problems. Not simply absorbing what people say (or don’t say), but feeling it. Their needs, values, fears and loves. It is by thinking with both my head and my heart that I hope to inspire real change, innovation and cultural movement, whilst helping to create more meaningful relationships between people and brands.
