Thank you for stopping by my digital home. You'll find out more about me, links to all my continued endeavours as well as quotes from those who motivate and inspire me.

After graduating in design and multimedia, I spent several years honing my craft in London’s leading ad agencies where I created campaigns and award winning ideas for countless fortune 500 companies. Thanks to these experiences that I've also developed a keen interest in business and future technologies.

I continue to work as a creative while experimenting on an eclectic mix of projects across all areas of business, technology and visual communication. I pursue a number of self driven projects including a weekly podcast, talks, workshops, monthly newsletter and several online tools.

Portfolio

Over the years I've worked on everything from concepting global print campaigns and designing brands, through to directing TV and music videos. I've helped to build and launch new technology platforms and designed websites that are enjoyed by thousands of people. I've also launched several events and been part of a number of exhibitions. Nowadays, I work on a few select projects a year that I enjoy working on and that align with my values.

Audio Blog

90% of my podcast episodes are with people who I admire or feel I could learn from. However, now and then I'll find myself explaining theories or experiences from my own life that I feel people could benefit from. When this happens I attempt to condense this learning into an easily digestible audio post. Subjects like how to overcome anxiety, the pursuit of happiness and the influence of inputs, are some of the most popular.
