About me

As a young man, Paul wanted to be a professional footballer. He was only prevented from realising his ambition by a lack of talent.

But he always had a flair for creative things and for a while considered being a sculptor, painter or set designer. Then a spell working on a fruit market revealed a talent for selling. He soon realised his future lay in a job that combined creativity with salesmanship.

Advertising seemed like the perfect way forward. Paul began his career in advertising with four years at Cogents, before moving to WCRS to work on BMW and Carling Black Label. Then in 1991, he was lured by David Abbott to join AMV.

Over the years, he’s won countless awards including six D&AD pencils and a dozen One Shows. He’s won the top prize at Cannes both as a creative and Creative Director.

Paul considers becoming Executive Creative Director of AMV BBDO and being President of D&AD in 2010 as the highlights of his career.

His appetite for great work remains undimmed. But he reasons that if the awards ever dry up, he always has the fruit market to fall back on.
