ABOUT ME

I have over 20 years’ experience working in content and digital businesses. My starting point has always been the same: focus on understanding the needs of the particular brand, business or audience, then create brand platforms, social content, activations or experiences that put people, not channels, first. 

Depending on the needs of the project I’m happy to work as a brand strategist, creative director, copywriter or script-writer. I can craft ideas myself, or keep clients and teams happy and focused as brilliant designers, editors, illustrators, photographers, film-directors and developers bring them to life.

Collaboration and trust, not ownership and control are important to me. I’ve worked alongside the best in the business from Wolff Olins to W+K, Cartidge Levene to Claydon Heely, DDB to Double G Studios. I know when to step in and when to step back and let people do their thing.

If you've got a box to put someone in, I’m probably not that person. But if you want to discuss how that box could be opened-up, improved upon, or just stacked better, you're in the right place.
