About me
An agent for the past eighteen years, I have helped develop some of the world's leading illustrators and image-makers. I've brought CGI whizzes, typographic supremos, and paper-cut masters – all working across different formats – to international agencies including BBH, AKQA; and clients like Nike, Google, Johnnie Walker, and Audi, amongst many more. I set up B&A's European office in 2013, with B&A now having outposts in New York and Shanghai. We proudly represent primarily photographers, animators, and illustrators but also everything in between.

    I received a 1st class honours and LOVED the course at Portsmouth, it was theory led with no room for error as our year group were hot to pick holes during crits. Met some wonderful people whilst studying and am glad to have studied just before the internet became a primary research source as it was drummed into us that good research, and critical thinking leads to good results.
