About me

I was that little boy running around the woodland pretending to be a magical being rather than sat inside watching TV – always drawn to beautiful things in nature, admiring those minute details that make life wonderful. While I no longer make a mean mud pie, my vivid imagination continues to inspire my creative work. I've pitched ideas to JWT, Fold7, Collective, The Hub & TBWA. I’m very sociable, and love to travel and meet new people, documenting inspiring moments on my camera as I go. Design has always been a great love of mine, from products, interiors, and architecture, to fashion and illustration. At home I can be found either tending to the garden or laying down vocals on my forever forthcoming EP. Being surrounded by nature and living a more conscious lifestyle is always important to me. I enjoy reading about current trends and immersing myself in new technologies.

Education

BA Fine 2:1 with a 1st in Dissertation

Falmouth University

  • I gained a broad knowledge and excellent understanding of the communications sector. I have explored various career avenues such as campaign creation in art direction, copy writing, product branding, brand strategy and planning, and digital marketing (SEO, PPC, Analytics). I have extensive experience working within a creative team, pitching ideas for live client briefs to reputable global ad agencies, such as JWT, Fold7, Collective, The Hub, and TBWA. Some of our ideas were very well-received as viable campaigns. This element of the course taught me the relationships involved in the B2C and B2B processes, which developed my organisational and confident public speaking skills. I studied the psychology behind consumer behaviours and motivations, allowing me to better interpret market research and demographic analysis. I received a first for my dissertation, focussed on retail giant H&M, exploring the fast fashion world in the age of the conscious consumer.
