I approach advertising like a ballerina taking the stage:

With nimble grace and humble strength. Except I dress in plaid, not sequins. I’m quick on my feet, down to adapt, and flexible enough to pirouette from high concept campaigns to purpose-driven platforms and back again. As our industry continues to evolve, my goal remains the same: bring brands and people closer together. I do this using strong concepts, smart tech, and sound strategy.

I make things outside the office – like Rox’s Secret Code, a picture book that inspires girls to get into technology, and The Clapping Clock, a site that celebrates frontline workers – because staying fresh matters. So does having a point of view and sharing it. 

Having been around for 16+ years, I’ve done it all. TV spots and online films, print ads and OOH, social content and content strategy, branded entertainment and experiences for brands, websites and mobile apps. Lately I’ve been doing lots of social and experiential like this and this, plus helping out startups like this. Next time you have a brief that can’t be solved conventionally, a brand you want to make famous, or a platform that needs to win over hearts and minds, let’s chat. I’d love to crack it together.
