About me

Growing up, I showed no promise in anything other than following snail trails right to their source. It’s a real wonder my parents didn’t show any real concern for my mental health, until the day I told them I would enroll in a design degree. I did design for a couple of years. Now I do art direction. Curiosity led me here — to advertising. Where I’ve been for the past 5 years as an Art Director. In that time I’ve worked for a number of national & global agencies in Australia and now the UK, including GTB, ClemengerBBDO, Grey and Ogilvy & Mather. Currently, I find myself in a little town called London. And I’m looking for freelance and full-time opportunities. Away from work, I keep my feet busy with football (yes, I’m an Australian who knows what football is); I have a sweet tooth that can locate the nearest bakery in a diabetic-al heartbeat; I like long walks and beaches, but refuse to combine the two for fear of becoming a total cliché; always have a book I’m currently reading (feel free to ask); and most of all, wish I could speak Spanish — but absolutely can't.
