My career started in South Africa where I spent six years learning and growing as a creative. I've been very fortunate to work with some fantastic people on global clients like Vodacom, BMW, KFC, Investec and Nike, and picked up a nice little collection of metal. Grey skies lured me home and I moved back to London in December 2016. I'm a completely through-the-line creative and love nothing more than getting my teeth stuck into a tricky, conceptual brief.
I'm all about the big idea.
I'm a proud Brit, so stereotypes about bad weather and buck teeth are not cool. (Though if you’re putting the kettle on I’ll have an Earl Grey, ta.) I like to think I can bake and I do a particularly good Chewbacca impression. My 'what are you going to be when you grow up' was, for a short time, either being in the Famous Five or running away to join the circus. Sadly, Enid Blyton never called and I have terrible balance, zero grace and can't throw knives in a straight line. After that I decided I was going to find a way to surround myself with like-minded, creative people forever since that, and Marmite, are my keys to eternal happiness.
