About me
When I was 7 years old, I came 2nd place in a local anti-littering poster competition - perhaps my greatest advertising achievement. Mum still has the newspaper clipping. Since 2012 I've worked for big corporate juggernauts, amazing indie agencies, and for the UK's biggest advertiser. Personal highlights include: opening a human-canine grooming salon in NYC, filming a documentary about British food, and turning Amazon's Alexa into an LGBT ally. In 2018 I wrote and directed a documentary about a group of female Morris Dancers called 'Boss Morris'. Currently, I can be found riding a bike around the canals of Amsterdam where I'm a writer for 72andSunny.

    Writer72andSunny
    Amsterdam, NetherlandsFull Time
    In 2018 I made the move to Amsterdam to join the brilliant team at 72andSunny. As a writer, I primarily worked on the eBay account for the UK and DE market. With eBay UK in 2018 we successfully made it through to the final round of the Channel 4 Diversity Prize - pitching to a panel of judges from Channel 4. I also brought to life two campaigns for Swedish bank Klarna - including the world's first canine-human grooming salon in NYC and a home shopping channel show starring Celeste Barber. Internally, my time was also spent writing for Google both on the software and hardware arms of the business. In 2020 I was part of the pitch team that secured Unilever backed vegan food company Like Meat.
