About me

I help agencies of all shapes and sizes tell compelling stories, developing content strategies that communicate their distinctive value to prospective clients.

While editor of international design magazine Computer Arts, I launched the Brand Impact Awards - an annual prize scheme that celebrates the best branding from around the world. I remain chair of judges.

My editorial skills also translate beautifully into long-form copywriting for brands. I recently collaborated with Virgin and Thames & Hudson to write Virgin By Design, a book exploring the brand's fascinating 50-year evolution.

In 2020, I was selected as one of Creativepool's Top 100 Influencers in the creative industry.

I am an active member of D&AD, 26, ProCopywriters and TypoCircle. As an awards judge, speaker and panel chair, I have worked with events and conferences globally.
