About me

Educated initially in Fine Art and as a New Media Director, then evolving into an integrated fashion and advertising Creative Director with ten years experience within advertising and fashion. I was working at some of the leading agencies and brands in London, Madrid, Singapore, and Prague. During the time in Grey London, we won Agency of the Year twice, and IPA Agency of the Year for Effectiveness. My objective has always been to create a cultural impact for brands through creativity. I believe in either entertaining people, be useful or both; everything else gets in the way of people’s lives. Brands that do this well are loved, embraced, and part of the cultural conversation. I also believe in the importance of craft. The craft can transform simple things into something genuinely profound. Transform logic into magic.
