About me

 

I have over 12 years of experience in advertising and editorial and have worked on both sides of the industry (both commissioning and representation) at the highest level possible. I have run 360 degree advertising campaign productions with global budgets in excess of £2m GBP whilst managing teams of integrated producers, and have managed large scale productions in the UK, USA, Europe and Asia. I pride myself on building strong relationships with both clients and artists and have a global network of both emerging and established talent.
