Running for New Blood Trustee
What can I do to support D&AD?
Well I've already sent their social media into a spin after getting the logo* tattooed on me, and have continued to remain a keen participant and contributer to all D&AD initiatives even though this has meant sporadically jumping from cafe to cafe, running up huge roaming bills and on one occasion paying a guy I barely knew to drive me to his place and let me use his family's 'Internet room' (remote Eastern Europe, always charming) so if you think there's someone more committed, by all means, vote for them.

Why D&AD members should support me?
Because I'm passionate about the work and about students, about helping to bring in a new wave of talent and of thinking into the field and pushing others to take their ideas further and further. Even after the headline brief had been pitched on I still found myself scamping up alternative solutions. I pulled myself out of an incredibly isolated Australian city, competed at an international level, nearly missed several flights, was almost arrested at Heathrow (yes, really) and finished two weeks with more understanding of the industry than I'd ever had. So if I can do all that, from my little sleepy hollow - imagine what I could do for future students.
