About me

I’m an award-winning creative lead and love working closely with strategy, tech and design.
I love digital.
Creating something that people will use, share and talk about excites me. Helping brands communicate in a positive, meaningful way - or simply making people happy - is what I enjoy most. Having spent the last 13 years in this part of the industry I have seen our medium grow up and get giddy thinking of what possibilities the future holds.
