Creative director at IMPERIAL LEISURE
LONDON, United Kingdom

Summary

I am the Creative Director and founder of Imperial Leisure. We are a boutique creative communications agency. We help brands connect with their audience across all media.

My background is in film and graphic design. I completed a degree in Graphic Design with Experimental Typography at LCP (now LCC) and I was lucky enough to start directing straight after college – I codirected a short film for Channel 4 that was screened at film festivals such as onedotzero, ResFest and SxSW. I then spent a number of years working in a freelance capacity with brands like Nokia, Sony, Ford, adidas, Nickelodeon, Levi's, O2 across film and interactive media.

Imperial Leisure started as a production company producing music videos, interactive pieces, motion graphics and title sequences. We then progressed into a creative agency model and expanded our offering and the brands we work with. We are a boutique-but-growing agency and we are lucky to work with some amazing brands.

I have a passion for experiments, storytelling and moving image.
