    Adopt A CowHow do you tell people that Cadbury is made with fresh milk? To us, the answer was simple, let them adopt the cows that produce it. We created an adoption network for Cadbury's cows. Each one had it's own profile and video.

    ŠKODAMOT Yourself is an idea we pitched to ŠKODA in 2017. A partnership with cancer activist Errol McKellar. If detected early, prostate cancer has a 98% cure rate. But it’s killing over 11,000 UK men every single year. The problem? Men don't know that they have it. Men don’t visit the doctor as often as they should and prostate cancer shows no symptoms until it’s too late. Due to its aggressive nature, this can be within a year.

Work history

    Creative Art DirectorDrum
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    I started my journey at Drum with Elliott Starr under Monty Verdi and now Claire Baker. So far, I've been combining my traditional ad skills with a new world of media partnerships. I regularly present to clients, lead on projects and see placement teams. My last piece of work with my creative partner was a brand platform idea and campaign for Anthony Nolan, a step closer again to my mission*. But the mission still continues, as a solo creative. *I'm on a mission to create work that influences culture and society and makes this little blue planet better as a result.

     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Here I worked on big brands such as Expedia, Cadburys and SKODA. Under Nick Bell I started to create less traditional work and instead looked to create initiatives such as the Real Test drive. Once again my mission* was ever closer as myself and Elliott Starr concepted the award winning idea Tour des Femmes (which was later executed by the team at Fallon, after we left). Here I also lead on a pitch for Body Shop, honing my presentation skills and how to take a big idea into store. *I'm on a mission to create work that influences culture and society and makes this little blue planet better as a result.
