About me

I started out as a musician in the band The Collectable Few (XL Recordings/Salvia, Laissez Faire Club, Universal). After years of touring across Europe and North America, recording an album in New York and a load of unforgettable experiences, it was finally time to give up the rock star life... Like many of those who find themselves in advertising, I very much fell into it almost by accident. I liked the idea of a career that embraced creativity, harnessed and enhanced my writing abilities, and wouldn’t require me to wear a suit... Fast-forward: I've now worked as an award-winning Senior Creative for eight years – working on some of the world's biggest brands: Nike, GANT, Rimmel London, Diet Coke, Air France and Bacardi. My agency experience includes BETC, AKQA, Grey and Ogilvy & Mather. Outside of London, I've worked in Paris, Portland and Tokyo. My awards include: Cresta Awards (grand prix), Creative Circle (gold), Cannes Lion (silver), Eurobest (silver), Art Directors Club (Bronze), D&AD (In Book), Creative Review Annual (in book), Ciclope Festival (silver), The Lovie Awards (gold), ADC Annual (in book).
