Award-Winning Integrated Creative Director.

Since starting at Phenomenon in early 2013 I’ve led numerous campaigns for multiple brands across a variety of industries, including Wilson Sporting Equipment, Warner Brothers, SBE, NutriBullet and Men’s Wearhouse. The majority of projects we do at Phenomenon are highly confidential. Come sign an NDA and I’ll tell you all about them.

I moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to co-found and lead Albion London’s first US office. We brought with us the same approach that has been so successful in Europe: working with the most interesting entrepreneurs and intrepreneurs across a wide range of innovation-led industries. My role continued globally as Creative Director on Air New Zealand as well as across a number of other Albion clients.

Before moving, I spent 4 years at the Albion mothership in London. Working as Creative Lead on Air New Zealand and giffgaff, as well as at senior level across all of Albion’s clients including Skype, eBay and Jose Cuervo. In a department of single Creatives, I teamed up with others on a project basis, and oversaw the work of younger Creatives. During my time there I averaged a fairly flawless pitch-win ratio (including the agency’s first global account) and helped build up Albion’s creative reputation.

Previous to that I spent 5 years at Ogilvy & Mather in London. First working as an Art Director on global campaigns for Dove, Ford, Amex and other bohemoth clients. Then co-founding ROOM at O&M: an experimental Art Direction and Design facility in collaboration with Copywriters and Creative teams, as Assistant Head of Design. After that I teamed up exclusively with copywriter Robert Cervera to form English Tim & Spanish Bob.

Before diving into advertising I worked as a freelance Art Director and Designer for a number of fashion and music clients.
