About me
It all started with a few felt tips and some cardboard, getting creative. Jump ahead a few years and I'm still doing the same thing coming up with ideas for print and film, OOH, digital and experiential- whatever works. But now it’s life-size CGI roaring lions, luxury cars, secret whiskies and giant tennis balls. I’m an award-winning creative who starts with ideas and insights, then crafts them into work that gets noticed. Over the years the projects and pitches I've been involved in has meant a lot of the time I've enjoyed working in small agile teams where we've had direct access with the clients - which in turn has lead to highly successful 360° creative work. Working in an open and collaborative way brings trust between one another and allows for free flowing creative. With my contacts and experience I can quickly find the right team of creative people to deliver the very best in creative execution, whether it be in print, online rich content, photography, film shoots, animation/CGi, motion graphics or an immersive rich experience. Do get in touch via email or phone, if you've got creative projects that you need help with on a freelance basis or perm. I'd love to offer my experience, craft skills and contacts and doing some great work. You can see what I've worked on and proud of via my portfolio link below:
