About me
An experienced through the line creative director whose speciality is digitally focused, yet whose experience has taken digital ideas into all content forms; television, experiential, events, digital out of home, ambient, guerrilla, press and poster. A passionate and strategic creative thinker at the top-level idea generation stage, but one who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty through the entire production process. An experienced art-director/creative writer and film-maker as well as experimental digital pioneer.
