"Knowledge, experience and wisdom of a pro. Energy, enthusiasm and ambition of a graduate". That’s how a colleague summed me up. And I’ll buy that.
All I’d add is that I’m addicted to problem solving and take enormous pleasure from advertising, promoting and selling things.
And because I’ve never forgotten the people who’ve helped me in my career, I've managed placement teams, run college workshops and done voluntary work for the D&AD.
I’m lucky to have worked at some great agencies and always during their heyday: perfect timing.
From financial services, political parties, retail and charities, to cars, trains, holidays and more; I’ve been around the block in terms of sectors. Above the line, below the line and integrated, my career has spanned them all. So I've got experience working on everything from shelf wobblers to CRM, digital, content, film, and social. "Solid all-rounder" is how a recruiter might pitch me.
With so many new places and ways to bring creative ideas to life, this business is crazier, more exciting and more valuable to clients and the world than ever.
How cool is that?
