About me

<p>I'm a Creative Director at The Monkeys, Sydney, where they let me get away with a lot of fun things.</p>
<p>Things like bringing a mormon, a hare krishna, a bikie and a few hundred other people on top of a cliff for a lamb barbeque to highlight the lack of diversity on TV. Or working with glassblowers to create a series of unique vines to house a wine collection with a pedigree. Or revealing the secret stories of household items for IKEA.</p>
<p>I like solving strategic problems and finding new ways to tell a brand's message, drawing on human truths and the world of wonderful things we see around us every day.</p>
<p>I'm lucky to work with many brilliant creative people at The Monkeys and have also helped tutor a bunch of new ones for AWARD School, 5 of our students made it into the top ten and one in the top three.</p>
<p>In previous lives, I have worked as an illustrator, a designer, a food reviewer, before longer stints at Vogue Magazines, Wieden + Kennedy London and Publicis Mojo Melbourne.</p>
<p>My work has been awarded worldwide and appeared in places like the D&AD annual, TIME Magazine, a NSFW magazine sealed section and an East London footpath.</p>
