Self-confessed tech, type and advertising nerd. I am currently Executive Creative Director and Head of Design at TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and also responsible for founding and launching Design by Disruption, Chiat’s first design agency.

Prior to TBWA, I spent 7 years at Ogilvy in both Paris and New York offices working as a creative and building design & maker teams. Before joining the design and advertising world I worked as a model-maker, creating prototypes for the toy industry.

I’ve worked on some of the world’s most iconic brands including IBM, Coke, McDonald’s, Adidas, Nestle and Perrier and have won over 100 international industry awards including over twenty pencils at D&AD and a Grand Prix at Cannes Lions.

Working as both a creative and designer in the advertising industry has given me a unique perspective and understanding on how design can help solve advertising problems and visa-versa. My philosophy is think-design-craft and my best work marries design thinking with creative thinking. I’m also a little obsessed with craft.

Awards:
D&AD: 23 Pencils (2 Yellow Pencils)
Cannes Lions: 26 Lions (3 Grand Prix)
OneShow: 44 Pencils (1 Best in Category)
ADC: 15 Cubes (3 Best in Category)
Clios: 13 Statues (2 Gold)
The Webby Awards: 13 Webby’s (2 People’s Voice)
