Exceptionally fast creative problem solver. Bespoke easy to assemble ideas available in all shapes and sizes. Laser-like strategic thinking built-in. Comedy specialist. Quality assured. No problem too big.
I do ideas. Ideas I believe will be effective. Any format. Any media. From Strategy to strap-line. Traditional, digital, social, experiential and virtual.
I’ve worked in big agencies, written famous ads and won prestigious awards. I’ve also written a sketch comedy tv series and been a professional stand-up comedian. My observations are insightful. My writing sharp.
A simple thought is all you need. Get the thinking right and the ideas will write themselves. All great advertising ideas are extremely simple and blindingly obvious. That’s why so few people are capable of thinking of them.

For the past five years I’ve also been an in-house Creative Director at The School of Communication Arts, where I tutor the next generation of Creatives in strategic thinking. I also try to instill a sense of purpose and the drive and desire it takes to become a top professional. The hope is, they will go on to use their talents to help change the world for the better.
