About me

I am an advertising professional with 13 years working experience in the industry operating across multiple channels and disciplines.

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Multimedia Design at Tshwane University of Technology in 2005 and have been working in agencies ever since. I have proven experience primarily in Art Direction, Creative Strategy, Web Design and Social Media Content but I am more than capable of contributing with Copywriting, high-level Digital Media Strategy and some basic front-end Web Development.

I currently hold a position as Creative Director at McCann1886 in Johannesburg where I work to create strategic, integrated solutions of the highest creative quality for consumer goods brands. Producing work that reflects the ever-evolving nature of modern communication is my passion, hence my love for all things digital and connected. I also strive to stay on top of the latest insights, trends and learnings in the sector.
