I’m an Executive Creative Director that has been fortunate enough to travel and work with some of the most iconic brands in the world.

I have had a wonderful journey within the creative industry, beginning my career at Frost* Design in Sydney Australia.

I became the youngest Design Director at Frost*, where I took on at the time, Frost*s largest advertising account, the Northern Territory Tourism Commission, as well as working on numerous dream jobs spanning branding, publication, web design, and environmental design.

In 2009 I was seconded as the consultant from Frost* to guide Woolworths with across-business Creative direction and development of an internal design studio and directing 9 creative agencies spanning packaging, advertising, online, publication and VM. At the end of the 2 year period we had found great success, launching over 1000 new products, major brands, advertising communication and way finding, helping the business increase it’s revenue and almost double their operating profit.

In 2011 I moved to Portland Oregon do lead creative on the 2012 Olympic Games for Nike and launch their global Nike+ initiative. I developing the athlete and product direction, as well as the visual communication for the brands campaign and in store presence during the worlds most watched sporting event.

I moved to New York, becoming the Creative Director for Chobani, repositioning the brand and aiding it’s success as one of the fastest growing companies in American history. After Chobani, I became Creative Director at Lair+Partners a leading global fashion brand agency where I oversaw the Swarovski, Calvin Klein accounts.
