Work history

Currently

Creative Art Director

Drum

Jan 2018
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full 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.

2017

Creative Art Director

Fallon

Sep 2016 - Dec 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full 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.

2015

Creative Art Director

Leo Burnett

Jan 2013 - Dec 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • This is where I cut my teeth in the industry. Under Justin Tindall; I honed my art direction skills on shoots for McDonalds and Co-op. I worked on everything from print and TV to a pro-active initiatives for the likes of Action on Addiction (a step towards my mission*) I was then awarded Cannes Young Lions Team 2014 and then again in 2015, with my creative partner, at the time, Elliott Starr. We were also awarded with a Creative Circle shortlist for our McDonald's Wrapping Paper. *I'm on a mission to create work that influences culture and society and makes this little blue planet better as a result.
