About me

Sadly, both launched and closed several creative companies; notably ANTHEM BBDO (London), WellsNobayMcDowall (Melbourne) and Droga5 (Sydney). Worked for several more that are still in business. Won a few awards. Launched the CreativeSpirit program that continues to find employment for skilled and brilliant disabled people in our funny industry. Wrote and staged a play MOVING PARTS at NIDA. Completed my first art exhibition for Maunsell Wikes Gallery, hosted a TV show RECIPE TO RICHES for Ch10. Presently working on a poetry/film project #ARTBREAKS for the ABC. Just founded a new creative agency MARCEL (currently still in business).
