About me
I'm a hugely passionate and very driven creative director fortunate enough to lead a variety of different projects, businesses and teams to create communications, experiences, products and services. Love to look at problems and figure out the best way to solve them, or find an opportunity we didn’t know existed to create solutions that are meaningful, useful and most importantly loved by consumers I have over 16 years of experience across brand strategy and marketing campaigns as well as products and services including mobile applications, wearables and games. Well-versed in growing, training and mentoring teams that can function independently or in close collaboration with clients or production partners, be that remotely or through co-location.  I have been lucky enough to have worked across some of the worlds top brands including Nike, TAG Heuer, BBC, and Xbox.
