About me

When I was young, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Unfortunately, being a superhero wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped. So, I decided to change the world for good with design instead. Growing up in Thailand gave me a very different perspective, but I wanted to come home to the UK to study for my degree. My career got off to a great start when I won a D&AD Student award. And I quickly got a job in one of London’s top advertising agencies. Over the last 20 years I have moved from graduate to designer and on to Head of Design, but I've never lost my passion and enthusiasm. My desire to create and innovate drives everything I do and I believe it is essential to keep up with global design and technology trends. As Head of Design I have had the privilege of managing and growing a strong team - 15 at its peak. I have nurtured young, up-and-coming talent and mentored senior designers, who have gone on to become design directors, creative leads and heads of design themselves. I enjoy overseeing jobs but also revel in getting hands on with design work still. I have been fortunate enough to work on several award-winning campaigns (ATL and BTL) and have worked on some truly iconic brands including McDonald's, Coca Cola, Kellogg’s, Heinz, Samsung, Grolsch, Always, Fiat, Nintendo and Jeep, to name just a few. I've even saved a few lives on the way with my work on RNLI.
