About Me

A little about me.
Award winning Creative Director with a passion for Innovation, Emerging Technology and of course Creativity.
In short I am a Creative Geek

I am a media neutral Creative Director who is happy working on TV as much as digital.

My background gives me a unique perspective on marketing and innovation.
I have a career that began in the Technology arena and after a number of years working I decided to move into the creative field, I have spent the last 8 years working in some of the most award winning advertising agencies in the world, bridging the gap between Traditional and Digital Creative, because of this I am happy to Creative Direct any client regardless of the media channels.

In April / March 2012 I was a guest CD critic at Humber university for the Creative Advertising course.
