About me

I’m an award-winning brand storyteller and creative with over 25 years’ experience in advertising and broadcasting. I started off in film, moved into advertising and now combine my experience of both in today’s digital brandscape. That means I’m as comfortable developing big 360° integrated campaigns as I am producing the individual pieces of content or assets that make up any part of a brand’s marketing mix.
