After winning the Cannes Young Lions Award I got my first job in advertising where I have spent the last 17 years working at London's finest ad’ agencies both permanent and freelance - BBH, M&C Saatchi, Y&R, BBDO, W+K, Leo Burnett and recently Ogilvy and R/GA. I have also had the pleasure of working at some of the best digital agencies - Dare, Poke, Crispin Porter, Profero, Saint, Tribal DDB & Isobar where I was lucky enough to pick up 2 Cannes Gold Lions and Campaign 6th Best Digital Ad Of The Decade. As I have worked for both the best ATL and digital agencies over the years, I feel that it gives me a unique perspective on the industry and would like to think of myself as a truly media neutral Copywriter/Art Director - whilst at BBDO I was CD on Mars and P&G in both an ATL and digital capacity and recently was ECD at Grand Union. I am very passionate about the work I create and would consider one of my fortes to be presenting to clients - after all there's no point in writing great work if you can' t sell it. I also have a very impressive record when it comes to winning pitches – I have won 9 out of the last 10. Roll on...
