About me

My background is firmly seated in Art Direction but my creative drive has led me to express myself through copywriting too. I like to throw a wide net.

I've worked in tiny agencies and multinationals. In-fact I've helped turn tiny agencies into multinationals. I've worked both alone and in classic art director/writer teams.

I have initiated two start-ups, both of which enjoyed a number of very successful years. My partners from each are still great friends (and occasional colleagues).

I'm a husband, father and dog owner. When I'm not working I'm wandering forests, fields and beaches with my dog, pondering life, resolving issues. I'm quite content but I'm driven too.
