About me

I am a Creative Director of 13 years experience in through the line and digital advertising.

I have worked on an amazing range of brands from automobiles, fast foods to banks such as Nissan, P&G, GSK and Unilever as well as Vodafone.

In my career I have also been awarded globally by the Webby awards, Clios, One Show, Cannes and D&AD.

What makes me different from other CDs is that I am very hands on in all project and I strive for the big idea to be the golden thread throughout all mediums for brand excellence.

But my main motto to my team is that there are no chefs in this kitchen only cooks.

I believe in in healthy collaborative relations between agency and client.

This write up is pretty much what everybody else will tell you but the one thing is that I can not handle lies or mediocrity and I am much better to meet in person. The summary of me would be disciplined, committed, loyal and honest. I am an ad man and I love what I do. I am much better in person and would to get in touch.
