About me

 

Hi peoples, Here’s some stuff about me. I began my advertising life as a suit, first at JWT London and then at George Patterson Y&R Sydney. After doing that for longer than was probably healthy, I signed up to Australia's most prestigious creative course, came top and joined The Monkeys, where I created through-the-line campaigns for some of their biggest clients. I then spent a while in the freelance world at agencies including M&C Saatchi, before going full-time at boutique Sydney agency Disciple. I’ve now returned to Blighty (as of July 2014) after nearly ten years down under and am available for both freelance and permanent copywriting roles. Non-advertising things I enjoy include surfing, cycling, reading and film. I’ve also volunteered in a homeless shelter to make myself feel better about my choice of career. If you'd like to chat, please email me at neilj78@gmail.com or call me on 07944 661961. Thanks for reading.
