About me

I am a highly creative and hugely experienced creative director with over 20 years' brand communication experience.

In my last role as Executive Creative Director of ZOO Communications, an integrated design agency where I led creative and client teams from concept to completion. I had overall responsibility for the company's creative output and ensure the highest standards of creative excellence across a multitude of disciplines: advertising, branding, design, digital, direct marketing and video.

My role demands I collaborate and communicate a creative vision. This involves working in close proximity with a wide cohort: account handlers, brand managers, marketing directors, strategists, designers, art workers and writers improving the quality and relevance of thinking and ideas.

I headed-up many of the agency's relationships from chemistry meetings and creative pitches to day-to-day conversations and the progress of projects. I thrive on new challenges so such leadership comes easily to me.

My own creativity is wonderfully adaptable. It has enabled me to create innovative solutions in sectors as diverse as financial services and sports apparel, hospitality and property both here in the UK and oversees in markets such as America, Europe and the Middle East.

The secret to my success is simple. Over time and with much drive and determination I have acquired the design and leadership skills to identify and enhance the creativity of others, which often requires me to draw on my innate ability to marry the right person to the right project at the right time.
