About me
This is me, currently A Creative Director at Brave. Having come from an integrated background, I like to think I look at things a little differently. It's why during my 11 and a bit years in the industry, not only have I worked for a diverse list of clients, including British Airways, Confused.com and CoppaFeel!, I've also picked up a few awards along the way.
Projects
  • Love Honey - Light relief in lockdown
    Love Honey - Light relief in lockdownBrave have won a whopping £250,000 worth of outdoor media for our cheekiest client, Lovehoney – the UK’s largest sex toy retailer. The prize was awarded for the Ocean Outdoor Crucial Creative competition. The competition called for brands to raise a smile during the easing of lockdown. This year has seen countless studies finding a rise in stress levels. When we venture out, it feels like we’re trapped in a nightmarish science fiction movie, with ‘social distancing’, ‘masks’, and ‘lockdown’ beco
  • Raise your Rosé
    Raise your RoséIf you've been to the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, you'll know how much rosé gets drunk. Lots. So what if the small fortune spent on that delicious pink stuff could go towards something good? Introducing The Cannes Lions Château de berne 2015, a specially made bottle of rosé that turns indulgent behaviour into good as the profits from every bottle go towards helping local charities. Santé to that.
  • Iceland - Barbecue Season 2018
    Iceland - Barbecue Season 2018The summer barbecue. One of the most competitive events of the season. Who will bring the best burgers? Strut in with succulent sausages? Our commentators are to here find out. They’re fast-talking, quip-making funny Americans. Together, they watch the BBQ action unfold, and make excited and witty comments throughout. To them, a barbecue is a lot like sport. And whoever brings the best food - is the WINNER!
  • Crimestoppers - Putpockets
    Crimestoppers - PutpocketsPick pocketing is a constant problem. Especially in City centres like London and Bristol. And while poster campaigns do what they can, there’s often no real cut through. One of the main reasons for this is that people never really believe that it will ever happen to them. However, how do you do this without actually taking something out of peoples pockets and bags? Well, you put something in.
  • Battersea Dogs & Cats Home - Happiness Starts At Battersea
    Battersea Dogs & Cats Home - Happiness Starts At BatterseaSince 1860, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home have helped to re-home millions of animals. The reason they've been so successful is because they do so much more than just getting the animals healthy. They make sure the animals are happy. Then, and only then are they ready to be re-homed. To really dramatise that point, we got the dogs and cats to show just how happy they are with big, wide, grins.
  • Confused.com - Drivers win
    Confused.com - Drivers winIf you're a driver then you know exactly what it feels like to experience a winning driver moment, like executing the perfect reverse park, finding the last hard boiled sweet stashed in the driver door pocket or the thrill of being the first to spot the bus lane is open... Our campaign for Confused.com focuses on bringing those moments to life. And who better to play the role of the winning driver than the star of Car Pool Karaoke, Mr James Kimberley Corden. And yes, that is his middle name.

    Motors.co.uk - Summer campaignFor some of us, the car is another member of the family, but there comes a time when we need to replace it.
