About me

Since attaining my degree in design and multimedia, I've spent several years honing his craft at London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy amoung others, where I've provided campaigns and award winning ideas for clients such as Nike, Coke, Adidas and Samsung to name a few. I continue to work as a freelance creative and experiment on an eclectic mix of creative projects across all areas of visual communication. I also pursues a number of self driven creative and research projects including a weekly podcast, talks, ongoing journal, and regular creative workshops. I also founded creativecatalogue.co.uk a website designed to aid advertising professionals in conceptulisation and deck creation.
