About me

I always knew I'd grow up at some point. And whilst the skateboard in the corner has gathered a bit more dust of late and the baggy jeans have become a little tighter in recent times, I'd like to think my mind is only getting sharper - and my 2b pencil as well.

I'm a London based Art Director with over 15 years of agency experience, producing work that gets results; on the tube, the back of a bus, online, on the airwaves and the doormat. I've helped find cures, save lives and build hospitals. The results speak for themselves*. I've even sold the odd garden shed.

From the conceptual through to the colouring-in, ideas to execution, I'm good at what I do (but hate to brag about it) and have worked at some decent agencies over the years. I don't take myself too seriously but I'm ready for a serious challenge.

* But I do have the numbers if you'd like to see for yourself.
