About me

Art Director with experience of working across sports marketing and bid consultancy, FMCG, and B2B publishing, I have over 15 years experience, a masters degree and a track record of working in senior roles and leading creative strategies for the companies I work for.

I've spent my time working for agencies, start-ups, freelance and SMEs across a massive range of industries. Not content to just sit back and create visuals, I'm the kind of creative that helps their clients to develop briefs, fashions designs based on creative solutions, user testing and feedback, and delivers projects that work.
