Work History

I mostly work alone but also have a world-class stable of partners that can be brought on-board for larger projects. I invite on-board who I believe will bring something to the table. Planners, filmmakers, animators, digital artists, exhibition designers, songwriters and dancers have all collaborated on my projects, as and when needed. Budgets are easily controlled and more importantly, transparent. I’ve worked with clients ranging from well-known global corporations to small - but wonderful - niche brands. I also work alongside some of the world’s leading advertising agencies. By doing so, I remain immersed in the latest and greatest industry techniques and disciplines but never forgetting the real issues and requirements of my clients. I'm more than happy to work with anyone with an open mind and with a desire to try something different. If you’re a forward-thinking brand or a slow-moving brand that wants to move a little quicker, then I'd love to talk.
