About me

I’m curious, a trait that I’ve applied to my career development and everyday thinking. Career wise it encourages me to challenge the brief, the ‘why’ and added value for the end consumer. Personally, it encourages me to explore different cultures and places whilst nurturing my love of interrogating the way people think, behave, work, consume and play.

    Jan 2016 - Jan 2017
    • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
    • Full Time
    • With a nomadic core and skillset in branding places and experiences for people, it was only right that I broadened my awareness of emerging markets and brands by exploring different cultures and communities across the globe. Named the 'city of opportunity' Dubai was the obvious choice. Dubai is a city who's very fabric is weaved from a multitude of threads. Provenance and Arabic traditions mixed with an ambition to be the biggest, boldest and most innovative city in the world. A parallel that the city hasn't quite figured out but is very much part of its charm, beauty and ongoing success. As a creative strategist from the UK, I used my knowledge and expertise to help existing global brands reposition themselves and new brands immerse themselves. I also spent a lot of time networking and exploring the MENA and Asian regions, it’s Neighbourhoods and people to get a true understanding of what trends, tribes and movements were being born and fostered.
