About

I’m a Creative Director with a passion for social media. I get excited by developing content that gives the audience what they love whilst successfully delivering a message they might not expect.

Over my 15 years+ of experience, I’ve been on the long and winding path from Designer to Art Director to Creative Director whilst moving from boutique digital agencies to bigger integrated agencies to the World’s biggest social media publisher.

I’ve loved picking up a plethora of experience in multiple disciplines. It’s allowed me to do what makes me happiest – helping to tell engaging stories and creating great content that is platform agnostic.

I’ve picked up a few awards, but more importantly, I’ve built great relationships with great people throughout the industry. I’m always excited for the opportunity to work with other creatives and take great pride in inspiring others to create work we can all be proud of.

Outside work, I have perennial FOMO and a huge passion for sports, music, film and travel. This results in having season tickets for Saracens rugby and London Lions basketball, constantly going to gigs, buying new vinyl, comics, and trainers and travelling as much as I can.
