About me
I am a creative brand marketer, content director and leader. I have deep expertise in content development, audience insight, communications, digital media, partnerships and production. I have held Director level roles in both agency and client settings - and led the marketing and creative functions in organisations in the media, digital and charity sectors. I enjoy using creativity to solve business challenges, particularly those that seek to disrupt the status quo, reach underserved audiences and make a positive impact in culture. I love building cross-functional collaborations and influencing all levels and aspects of an organisation from product development to digital to fundraising.

We developed a new creative identify and culture manifesto to enable change in the organisation and signal change to the world.
