About me
I am a Creative, Strategist, Photographer and all round brand person. I unashamedly want to change the world, in any small way I can. I believe Social and environmental justice should be central to all the work we do. We have the power of media and building brands and I want to see it done right. There is SO MUCH WORK TO BE DONE. Lets do it together.
