  • 70 Years of Formula 1
    70 Years of Formula 1I was the sole copywriter working with the design team at Formula 1 head office from 09/2019 - 09/2020.

'70 YEARS OF FORMULA 1' was written by myself, as well as all the comms in the pages below, which are taken from
  • All I Want for Christmas is Doritos!
    All I Want for Christmas is Doritos!In March 2018 I was approached to help create ideas for Doritos’ next Christmas campaign.

    The social team I was an integral part of at OMD created #SEhiddengems to promote artisanal and local businesses, as well as hot spots favoured by locals across London and the South East of England.

I pushed that Southeastern Rail enabled the audience to escape to and from the capital. The ongoing campaign was shortlisted The Drum’s content award.
