Bio

I'm a conceptual Art Director who is very comfortable thinking strategically and presenting to clients. And for the day to day work I have excellent Mac design and hand visualising skills for the process of producing client presentations and bringing ideas to life.

 

I have great mix of digital, social and traditional experience starting with UK agency TribalDDB followed by Publicis and VCCP. Recently I spent five months at True. I'm looking forward to my next permanent opportunity to help build your agency's future success.
