About me

An art director with a strong aesthetic sensibility working in photography, branding and strategy, campaigns, print, web and digital, interiors, installations and live brand activations for luxury- and fashion brands. Conceptually strong and precise in execution. An explorer of how brands talk to their audiences, how to engage them, and how to create memorable brand communication – from 2D images to immersive live experiences. A good team player with own initiative, able to see projects through from concept creation through to production and final delivery. Experience in commissioning and managing creative teams and collaborators. Able to give clear direction and communicate efficiently, take responsibility and prioritise tasks in a demanding work environment. Extensive IT skills including retouching, film- and sound editing software (final cut pro/logic) and Adobe CreativeSuite.
