Over the last 25 years, I’ve worked for some top agencies, such as BMPDDB, BBH and Leo Burnett. I’ve also freelanced for some top agencies, such as W&K, Mother, Buzzman Paris and Saatchi & Saatchi, as well as doing some interesting projects for the BBC and Google.
The same thing has always motivated me; making great work. Whether it’s writing it myself, or as a Creative Director. I’ve won a fair few awards at all the major advertising shows, including D&AD, Cannes, The One Show and the Clios, for clients such as VW, Harvey Nichols, Lurpak, The Guardian, McDonald’s, The Financial Times and Marmite.
My most recent full-time role was at Leo Burnett, as Creative Director of the McDonald’s account. In 2015, McDonald’s was awarded Client of the Year at both the British Arrows and Cannes.
After 5 years at Leo Burnett I decided to return to freelancing, as it allows me to work outside of traditional advertising while doing the thing I love most; writing.
In 2020 I became a founder member and Creative Counsel of Orange Panther Collective, a full-service agency, which offers clients bespoke teams of strategists, creatives and producers, operating entirely remotely.
