About me

I’m an award-winning creative & writer. I've recently word-powered Roger Federer, made coffee for Google (no milk, one film crew), fought crime with Motorola in the USA (admittedly that consisted of typing up a script in my flat in E16), and fuelled interest in the world's fastest car. Here are some things creative agencies have said about me: Movement Digital (client Coca-Cola): “Excellent professional! Reliable and dedicated, he created good content for our clients. It was a pleasure to work with James. We recommend him for any concepts creation project.” Green Park Content (client Unilever): “James was excellent, very efficient and great quality work. Highly recommended!” 2019 Timeline: Oct - Porsche EV launch campaign. Sep - Shell pitch at Vayner & Amazon Blink project. Aug - LBC Explains video & Instagram stories for Hilton Hotels.
