About me

I’m a Senior Conceptual Art Director and Designer specialising in Sports, Outdoor and Fashion brands. I’ve delivered a vast range of work including print, social, event, experiential and fully integrated global 360 campaigns for Canterbury, Speedo, Berghaus, Ellesse, Lacoste, Ted Baker, Max Factor, Becks, Channel 4, Disney, ICA, Design Museum and Atlantic Records. I combine hands-on technical knowledge with strong conceptual skills to produce brand defining work. I’m confident working with professional sports talent and world-class image makers, from teams including England Rugby who I shot with the photographer David Bailey, to Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time. I'm a calm, assured lead on even the most challenging projects. I've captured football, rugby, tennis, mountain biking, swimming and BASE jumping, art directed shoots in South African townships, underwater stages, world famous stadiums, in studios, at altitude across Europe and on iconic beaches from America to Australia. As a side project I'm also co-founder of Smithtown, an experimental graphic art and design studio. We collaborate with up-and-coming brands and have exhibited at the Design Museum. smithtown.co.uk
