Here's a bit more about me.
I'm a Creative Director.
I won six Cannes Lions in my first six years as a creative.
I spent six years at Colenso BBDO where I made the transition from Head of Design to Art Director.
I then spent three cold years at TAXI Toronto where I was Creative Lead on McCain Foods which as Canada's second largest private company generates $6 billion annually in revenue.
I was a Creative Director for 2 years at Y&R and 2 years at Special Group. I am now back at Colenso BBDO as a Creative Director and after 8 years away, Nani the cleaner still remembers my name.
I have a passion for big ideas which has seen me create a doggie version of Snapchat for Pedigree which added fun filters to your dog’s selfies, light the Auckland harbour bridge with over 96,000 solar powered lights to demonstrate the city’s commitment to becoming 100% renewable, create a treehouse restaurant for Yellow - halfway up a redwood tree, an in-flight fashion show for Air New Zealand - taking two years to receive civil aviation approval, wrap a New York water tower in 50 kilometres of yarn for D&AD’s call for entries and spend four weeks in an RV travelling from New York to Los Angeles to film the music of America on a smartphone – demonstrating the roaming capabilities of a local Telco.
I have won over 100 international awards for my work at multiple shows including Cannes, D&AD, The One Show, Clio, The Webby Awards, Spikes and numerous local shows.
I've judged at Spikes, New York Festivals, The Webby’s and local shows in both Australia and NZ.
And I'll never win any awards for this, but I love to sing. I trained in Toronto with Elaine Overholt who also taught Catherine Zeta Jones and Richard Gere - people with actual talent.
Auckland, New Zealand.
