A career that is rooted in Art direction and Design, through the 15+ years of experience within leading integrated agencies has led me to become a multi-disciplined creative just as ease in traditional brand development or experiential and interactive projects. Through building a portfolio career cross industry and Brand whether freelancer, consultant or in-house creative my roles have allowed me to engage my diverse range of disciplines exceeding client’s needs both commercially and creatively.
