About me

After completing a degree in Philosophy I pursued a career as a musician for a number of years. Despite my band receiving mainstream radio play, a wealth of festival bookings and even a support slot with Primal Scream, we never quite 'made it'. The band was largely self funded, so I took on a variety of jobs to keep going, such as working in marketing for Universal Music, a brief stint at a consumer PR agency and, most importantly, numerous web design and development jobs. When the band came to an end, I was able to use my unusual experience and skill set to land a design job at London digital agency VML. Whilst working as a designer across clients such as Xbox and The Premier League I realised that Art Direction was more my bag and I was given the opportunity to get stuck into more conceptual work. A couple of award nominations, one actual win, and a big pitch win later I decided it was time to try my hand at freelancing. My second freelance contract was at AKQA, and they convinced me to stay on permanently as an Associate Creative Director, working across Volvo and Booking.com.
