A former rock and roll enthusiast turned advertising sellout. After trading my bass guitar for a Wacom tablet, I found my creative outlet as an art director in the entertainment and advertising industries. Over the course of my career I’ve been lucky enough to work with big clients and win some nice awards, however, none will compare to the West Glamorgan Youth Football League title I won in 2002.

I have picked up multiple awards at major international shows including Cannes Lions, Cannes Lions Health, Cannes Lions Innovation, One Show, D&AD, D&AD Impact, Clio, Clio Health, LIA, Dubai Lynx and The Loeries for campaigns across mutliple sectors including traditional, entertainment and health and wellness.

Currently I work as an Associate Creative Director for Impact BBDO Dubai, where I helped the agency to win both Network and Agency of the Year titles at Dubai Lynx 2019 posting a record awards total in the process. More success followed at Cannes Lions 2019 where we delivered the regions first Grand Prix and another agency record total.
