About me

To me being a Project Manager and Creative Producer is all about finding that perfect balance between creativity and practicality. Over the years I’ve worked both in-house and agency side across activations for high profile global brands. I’ve overseen projects from pre-production to implementation, always keeping an eye on both the little details and the larger brand vision. Everyday I’m challenged to be creative, resourceful and problem solve on the go, all the while making sure everything is scheduled and delivered on budget. I have a keen eye for where brands sit within the market which assists me with strategy planning. My creative approach - no matter the medium - is to create and manage activations which have creative insight and build brand loyalty. Ultimately, it's about creating memorable moments for the consumer and the clients whilst pushing the brand to its full potential. I have an extensive network of suppliers, production agencies and brand contacts, potentially bringing new clients with me into a new role. After five years at House of Vans and Black Sparrow, I’m looking for a new challenge. An opportunity to work on brands which are more versatile, contemporary and designed focused.
