About me

“A company that focuses solely on profits ultimately betrays both itself and society.” - David Packard, co-founder of Hewlett-Packard A creative director and brand consultant with over 20 years experience. I founded and edited Jocks & Nerds, a men’s lifestyle magazine, for six years. I began my career at i-D magazine; later working at Vice. In that time, I have built a range of unique skills and experience that has proved invaluable for my commercial work. I ask the overarching questions about the role of communication for a brand. “What is the brand’s heritage?” “What are the brand’s values?” “Who is the brand’s audience?” “How does its audience act and behave?” Whilst we are all wowed - and perhaps daunted - by the pace of communication today, we are also unclear on its value - both morally and commercially. In my work, I bring a focus to a brand’s needs and values, both back to the client and the creative team. Today’s technology - a myriad of communication channels that are always switched on - can by its very nature become ephemeral, impersonal and forgettable. Having worked in media for 20 years, I always consider the story - how to make something valuable, nourishing and honest. How, in fact, to engage an audience.
