For the good part of 13 years I have been working as an Art Director in Advertising. My career has taken me from Auckland onto London, then back to Sydney where I am currently based. 

During this time I've completed major 360 campaigns and initiated work that has run globally for a variety of clients. The corporate big guns such as American Express, Nestle, British Gas and GE. Fashion brands including Bendon, French Connection and Asos and FMCG favourites - Weet-Bix, Marmite, Up & Go and Milo. 

I have been fortunate enough to work at agencies where integration is at their heart. This has enabled me to work on a range of disciplines from DM, print, TV and radio to events, branded entertainment, packaging design and digital. I am confident working in any of these fields. 

I have managed junior teams and been brand guardian to several brands including Magnum UK/EU out of London which worked nicely for myself and my writer - free ice cream and all. 

Although an art director by day – by night I like to sew, craft and design stationery.
