I’m a North Londoner living in LA working as a Creative Director in the areas of Branding and Experience Design.

Over the past 15 years I’ve had incredible opportunities to create some highly visible projects for brands like Sonos, Apple, Beats by Dre, Nike Jordan Brand, Nike Running, Gatorade, Nissan and Google to name a few. 

I have been gathering insights and skills along the way, aimed at evolving how people can interact with brands and develop genuine relationships.

Creating new experiences fascinates me and pushes me to constantly be thinking about what’s next, I love to keep myself open to what’s possible and I bring that perspective to the teams I work with.
