Born in Sunderland, went to Art College in Newcastle, then came down to London to make my fortune in Advertising.


Have I made my fortune?


Well, I wouldn't be making my own website if I had.

But thankfully, I've enjoyed almost every minute of not making my fortune.


Over the years I’ve worked with the very good, the very bad and the very ugly, on the good, the bad and the ugly: Charity, Fashion, Tourism, Healthcare, Automotive, Telecoms, Finance, Tobacco, Alcohol, Gambling, you name it I’ve probably done it. 


I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the best in the business and pick up a few awards for creativity and effectiveness, from the likes of D&AD, One Show, Campaign, Creative Circle, Cannes, MAA, ISP, and RAB Aerial Awards. 


It’s a rather eclectic mix of awards, but it’s testament to the fact that I understand how ideas work; above-the-line, below-the-line, through-the-line, wherever you draw the line I’ll happily cross it to make something good, that hopefully makes a difference. 


I'm still passionate about creative work and enjoy being involved in every stage of the process from the creation of the brief to working with clients to find the best solution. Whether it's for a vaccine that saves lives or a voucher that saves someone 5p on a tin of beans,

Today, I'm constantly amazed how some people think enough, is enough, and accept blandness as a viable solution to a creative brief. 


I believe advertising should make people laugh, cry or think, and I'm prepared to fight for that belief. 

Which is probably why I haven't made my fortune.
