A former rock and roll enthusiast turned advertising sell out. I’ve worked for big clients and won some nice awards, however, none will compare to the West Glamorgan Youth League title I won in 2002.

Having been privileged to work for some of the biggest media and entertainment companies in the UK including Universal Records, Warner Music Group and EMI Records I relocated to Dubai in April 2016, joining the creative team at OgilvyOne as their Head of Art.

I have worked on award winning campaigns for clients including IKEA, Lenovo, NASA and UNHCR. Picking up multiple awards at major international shows including One Show, Dubai Lynx, Cannes Lions, The Loeries and D&AD.

Currently I work as a Creative Director for Impact BBDO, Dubai and have helped the agency to win both Network and Agency of the Year titles at Dubai Lynx 2019, posting a record awards total. Another record followed at Cannes Lions 2019 with an agency record total, delivering the regions first Grand Prix in the process.
