I'm an Art Director & Designer with over 10 years experience in the communications industry. I believe that design and art direction are inextricably linked and neither can thrive in isolation. I'm passionate about new ideas and combining them with true human insights. My work has been awarded at The One Show, New York Festivals, AdFest, Ad Stars, APAC Effies, Australian Effies and recognized at Cannes Lions and The Webby's.

In 2015 I was invited to tutor AWARD School (Australia's premiere advertising creative course) and subsequently tutored the first placed student Hannah Payton.

During my career I have worked across a portfolio of some of Australia's most iconic brands including AAMI, Cadbury, BP, BMW, BIC, South Cape, Metro, Nimble, KingGee, L'Oreal Men Expert, Maybelline, Worksafe, Tigerair, Maurice Blackburn, Forty Winks, Dulux, British Paints and Cobs Popcorn to name a few.

I'm currently developing an original Australian adult animated sitcom called 'Schooled!' with Jess Wheeler and Tim O'Shea. Read the press release and download the media kit here.
