Hi. Hello. Hey.

 

I’m an award-winning creative who’s spent over 13 years producing work for agencies all across the country. I’m as happy concepting as writing copy. And as competent in Photoshop as I am using InDesign.

 

While also running the Young Creative Council, the Placement Poverty Pledge, Ad Job Wall and Single Creatives, I’ve created client work that includes turning Westminster Tube into a jungle, the House of Commons into a zoo, and thinking up puns on the spot for a real-time reactive OOH Euros campaign.

 

It’s not always been plain sailing though, I’ve also had Roman Abramovich send his lawyers over one ad, maybe slightly upset the royal family (but not Times subscribers), and crashed a client’s website (due to an excellent creative idea that massively increased traffic).


Highlights

 

Three D&AD Pencils, one Cannes Lion, six Creative Circle awards, and 21 other industry awards. Turning the House of Commons into a zoo. Writing 400 unique and real-time headlines during Euro 2016 that appeared on billboards instantly. Running 18 weeks of Covid-eo Crits. Getting people to watch Greece v Russia (and other terrible football matches) just to win free pizza. Squeezing in Boris Johnson, looking an idiot, 29 times into an ad. Judging the D&AD New Blood Awards copywriting category. Hosting countless YCC events, including book crit nights, Single Mingles and talks. Securing jobs for hundreds – maybe even thousands – of juniors entering the creative industry through Ad Job Wall. Being part of Creative Circle’s ‘inner circle’. Lecturing and teaching at various universities, including Glos, USW, UCLAN, Falmouth, Lincoln, Swansea, East Anglia, LCC, Sunderland, Bucks, and Sheffield. Seeing Ad Job Wall surpass the 1 million hits mark.
