I’m a doer and a maker


I’ve spent the last 14 years collaborating with world-class, passionate people at the likes of AKQA in both London and Amsterdam. Brands I’ve had the pleasure to work with in that time include Nike, M&S, Heineken, Dyson, Nissan, Phillips and Lancome.

The past 3 years have been some of my most memorable though, inside Google Brand Studio. We’ve created everything from Searching for Syria - an award winning interactive story for the UNHCR - to an educational VR experience teaching kids about renewable energy, to retrofitting a piano made in 1870 so it plays visual animations in order to help people who are scared of technology. 

I’m humbled to be part of a global community of exceptionally hard working people, and keen to give back. With a hunger and desire to add a greater value and meaning to the things I design, craft and create, I wake up excited everyday that I have the chance to help connect people’s lives in ways I never thought possible a decade ago.
