About me
As a creative strategist, I work to bridge the gap between thought and craft. I start at the beginning, redefine the brief and seek the truth to articulate a real purpose into a brand narrative that results in meaningful moments. I do this with brands, agencies, friends and movements, globally. Curiosity drives me and fortunately, I get to use it on a daily basis, to uncover cultural, brand, business and product opportunities. I use immersive, unconventional and creative methods which, for the most part, involve me being away from my desk and out in the real world. A world in which I want my work to make a meaningful difference. Lofty, I know, but one can try.

  • Defining audiences through collections for HUGO BOSS
    Defining audiences through collections for HUGO BOSSBOSS and HUGO are two strong brands that are clearly distinguished by their fashionable style but meet the same high standards of quality and fit, innovation and sustainability. Which begs the question of how BOSS differs to HUGO and are the wearers, collectors and advocates of those brands the same audience? Together with Wednesday Agency, I led a heuristic brand, audience, competitor and market immersion do decipher what each brand stood for and who, exactly, was the HUGO to the BOSS man. The

  • The Joy of Convenience Food
    The Joy of Convenience FoodStill cited as the most important meal of the day, the DIY breakfast solution was due an evolution. Enter JoyBol. Kellogg's innovative breakfast solution that doubled up as a high protein snack and smoothie bowl. But, how adoptable was it? My task was to explore the brief, 'can JoyBol be the new breakfast product that combines the benefits of a nutritious meal with the ever-changing needs of the people?'. I worked with a team of young brave interns and, collectively, we challenged, answered and
