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.

    Audible - Lessons for a LifetimeChristmas 2021, Audible wanted to introduce parents to a new range of audiobooks bringing classic tales to life.

LA, San Francisco and NYC are among the most congested cities in the world; averaging over 100 hours of wasted time stuck in traffic annually, which has a huge impact on our mental health. Ads will use popular book titles with witty twists, celebrating the new found love for commuting. The ads will be specific to each city and the way people commute there. Through partn
