About me

For the last 5 years I have been working in the creative industries, gaining experience in a broad range of multidisciplinary fields from social entrepreneurship, to service design, to luxury digital advertising. I am now working as a freelance creative and strategist. In this turbulent year, its never felt more crucial for brands and businesses to get it right - whether that’s resonating with consumers, finding greater purpose or simply surviving. The right story well told is the goal, the creative and strategy are the catalysts. This is what gets me up in the morning.
