I am a Creative Director with 21 years industry experience working at some of the world's best agencies. I started out as an Art Director, but I’m equally adept at writing and have also worked as a Copywriter.
After graduating with a degree in Product Design, I started my working life at a little-known company by the name of General Motors. It was there that I quickly mastered The Internet and took on the aptly titled role of ‘Web Master’. After a couple of years peddling cars the world of Digital Advertising beckoned, and I joined Agency Republic.
Agency Republic, London
At Agency Republic I mixed things up a bit working as a Creative, a Director and a Sound Designer for some of the world's best known brands including Adidas, Smirnoff, Baileys, Gordon’s, Lynx, PlayStation, EA Games, MTV, O2, Samsung, Nokia, BBC, COI, Dunlop and Mercedes.
During my eight years at Republic, the agency won 'Digital Agency of the Year' five times. Over that time I worked on a range of award winning projects, and in 2005 I set up Republic Film.
Republic Film, London
Republic Film was a pioneering production company specializing in interactive film, 3D, and sound design. The company went on to play a pivotal role in much of the agency’s best known work.
The Monkeys, Sydney
After eight great years I left Agency Republic to join The Monkeys, Sydney as Digital Creative Director. Over my tenure The Monkeys was named B&T Advertising Agency of the Year twice, B&T Grand Prix Agency of the Year, Australian Creative Magazine's 'Creative Hot Shop of the Year', AdNews NSW Agency of the Year and the AdNews No.1 ranked advertising agency in Australia.
Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Boulder/London/Miami
After three years in Sydney I decided to hop across the Pacific to take an Executive Creative Director position at Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Boulder, Colorado. At Chuck Porter's request I moved back to the UK to take control of CP+B London as ECD. After the brief stint in London I returned to the US to CP+B Miami.
After 18 months in Miami I left Crispin to take creative control of HUGE LA as Executive Creative Director. In the first six months we picked up the global Wizarding World of JK Rowling account, Amazon Prime, and the global relaunch of 7 For All Mankind.
After HUGE I decided to stroll down Wilshire to join the folks over at Phenomenon as Executive Creative Director. Early new biz wins included Naked (PepsiCo) and TD Ameritrade, and we were lucky enough to be named an AdAge Small Agency of the Year.
Gypsy Inc, Everywhere
In an effort to keep the brightest minds from leaving the industry, in 2019 I co-founded Gypsy Inc, a platform that allows creative and strategic thinkers to work together remotely from anywhere in the world.
You can call me The Littlest Hobo.
