About me
I suck at bios but here are some facts: I’ve won three D&AD New Blood Pencils, a Creative Conscience Award, Cream Collective 2020, and got a Wee Nod from the Nods, all under lockdown. My portfolio won, among other brilliant talents, on the D&AD Portfolio Picks 2021 competition. Experience includes Wunderman Thompson, BBC Creative, Whitespace (An Isobar Company), STV Creative and Isobar MENA. Featured in Campaign Magazine (September 2020) and Ads of the World. BADASS.GAL #509. 10/10 will share Spotify playlists.
