About me

'My role at H+K is to lead the first 'Global Centre of Creative Strategy' and take responsibility for quality of the strategic and creative output agency. The 'GCCS' is a global initiative to embrace change, and equip our network for the challenges it faces, now and in the future.

Much of my time is spent in London + China working with Huawei, Honor and Envision to deliver global IMC campaigns.

He is also a well-renowned and respected industry authority and has served as judge at Cannes Lions, D&AD and PR Week Awards.
