Bio

Meet Tom.

 

Tom, is a rather jovial character. His dancing prowess is far superseded by his curiosity and will to entertain. Leftfield is where he feels most at home, but his ability to adapt quickly to the task at hand means he is a safe bet on any brief, be it for banners or brand spots. An art director, first and foremost, Tom has also been known to jump on the tools from time to time and even deliver zinger headlines in a pinch. Heck, he'll even VO your ad if you give him half a chance.



Cutting his teeth under some of the industry's weightiest heavies, Tom has worked across the TBWA, DDB, BBDO and Dentsu networks in New Zealand and Australia, with a smattering of independents thrown in for good measure. Yeah, there have been some awards. Recognised at all the usual industry soirées, here and further afield, Tom has picked up a bit of tin along the way. For the last few years, Tom has managed to freelance his way throughout New Zealand and run a number of his own clients in the process.



Accounts Tom has worked across are, but aren't limited to; ANZ, ASB, VISA, 2degrees, Telstra, Tourism New Zealand, Tourism Australia, Wrigley's, Streets, Arnott's, Sun Rice, BWS, McDonald's, Hungry Jack's, Nissan, Subaru, Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Stihl, Sky Television, New Zealand Fire Service, New Zealand Herald... the list goes on.
