About me

 

I graduated uni with a French degree and little idea of where to go in life. Then one day, after a chance encounter with a copy of Hey Whipple Squeeze This, I realised copywriting is for me - I mean, I've always loved words so why not? I then stumbled upon the D&AD New Blood awards, and thought I'd have a go. After all, I had nothing to lose except my pride, self-appreciation and twenty quid. I was lucky enough to win a wood pencil for my radio scripts for Dr Martens. Since then, I managed to get myself a place on the New Blood Academy, which cemented my desire to work in advertising. I'm on the lookout for any Art Directors who are looking for a creative partner, as well as any agencies looking for fresh faces.
