About me

My background traverses creative agencies, in-house at iconic brands and as part of nascent tech-startups. Previous employers include Microsoft, M&C Saatchi, Leo Burnett, elephantscantjump and Agio App, working on brands such as Xbox 360, RBS 6 Nations, EURO 2016, McDonald’s, RNLI, HP Sauce, Mail on Sunday, Morrison’s and Pfizer. During these positions I’ve had the chance to work on grassroots brand strategy, innovation projects and across the spectrum of communication channels, TV to OOH. Collectively, these projects have provided a range of fast-paced retail experience, alongside longer term, strategically-nuanced pieces of work. Whilst every project is unique, it has become second nature to take a strategic brief, develop concepts, progress through clients, clearing houses and approvers, before proceeding to production, print or playout. With a team of great people, anything is possible. I’m hoping to work with some great, inspiring minds to help mould the future of where lifestyle intersects with technology. Together, to develop innovative ideas that affect human behaviour in a positive way; using pioneering tech as a medium to enhance our lives.
