About me

I'm all about ideas. Great, big, ambitious ideas or pragmatic, problem-solving ideas, with the goal to transform a brand and really make a difference to the consumer's world, every single time. Extensive industry experience as a Creative Director, Copywriter and Art Director, I've solved complex briefs, brought vague briefs into focus and executed fantastic briefs with showmanship. Much of the resulting work has had a huge impact on the consumer and the client's business.

I've forged great relationships with clients, colleagues and suppliers, always looking to make the job fun for everyone along the way. They say my enthusiasm is infectious. I do know that I'm fully committed, highly motivated, hard-working and absolutely reliable. It's a wonderful industry and I'm proud to say that a great idea still gets me as excited as a puppy at dinner time. I like to think though, that I've gradually learnt the wisdom of an owl. A puppy / owl hybrid. Now there's an idea.
