I've spent the last 9 years in Somerset both working for myself as Oohlala Creative (commercial photography/design) and submerging myself in many personal art projects and explorations.

Before this I was Creative Director at WARL - one of the first integrated advertising agencies in London. Work included TV, press, posters, sponsorship, on-line, viral, DM, etc., for clients such as Tesco, Procter & Gamble, BBC, Sainsbury's, Gossard, Muji, and many others both big and small.

Before this I worked in a number of other London advertising agency creative departments including JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi and ARA (both as an art director and copy writer) across a wide spectrum of blue chip clients. Work included TV, cinema, radio, press and poster advertising. Awards have included D&AD, British Television Awards, Campaign Press Awards, Campaign Poster Awards, Cannes International Advertising Awards, Creative Circle, etc.

My Studies were a BA Hons in Graphic Design & European Studies at the London College of Printing (Now London College of Communication/University of the Arts London) which followed Foundation Studies in Art at Chelsea School of Art.

Other bits... I'm passionate about Formula 1 and have travelled to all corners of the world to see it, love cooking, scary rock 'n roll, film and am still trying to master Spanish! I'm also a terrible dancer!
