About me
Over the last 17 years, I’ve grown to become a conceptually strong creative, with a passion for great ideas and design. I’ve produced award winning campaigns across DM, Print and Digital, as well as producing TV, radio and Outdoor ads for a range of top FMCG brands. Working in agencies across London and Amsterdam, I’m experienced at solving traditional advertising briefs, from the obscure, seemingly dull, to big budget. Above all, it’s about coming up with a great idea, executed in an original and thought provoking way, to capture to the target audience. Working alone or in a team, I’m as comfortable coming up with headlines as producing strong imagery, be it as scamps or quality mac visuals. I'm confident presenting internally and to clients at pitch level. As every art director should be, I’m extremely passionate about design, photography and illustration; I follow, share, pin, blab, & snap with the best of them, keeping an eye on the latest trends in technology and social media. A problem solver to the end, I like to push ideas to their limit, and working with skilled visual talent, produce the best creative solution be it print, film or digital. I do all this with passion, professionalism, diplomacy and a great sense of humour!

  • Dreams Beds UK
    Dreams Beds UKDreams Beds needed a refresh of their social media channels, and we took the opportunity to come up with a new strategy focussing on 'Real Sleep'. This meant not only showcasing the products that Dreams offers, but celebrating sleep in all its real and relatable glory. From duvet days, to late night working, we aimed to show that more happens in the bedroom than just sleep, creating content that our audience could engage with and be entertained by. In order to provide standout and provide the brand with a strong online identity, I took the Dreams 'wave' and brand secondary colours to create a design used throughout social posts. Launching in the summer, we tackled the (rare) British summertime, and how we sometimes struggle to have a comfortable night's sleep in the heat:
