AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND // As one of the most respected and awarded creatives across New Zealand and Australia, I have been fortunate enough to have spent my time at the top agencies in the region. As ECD at BMF I helped the agency win Australian agency of the decade, and during my time as ECD at DDD New Zealand the agency won multiple agency of the year titles at NZ Effies, New Zealand AXIS Awards, Australian AWARD, Spikes Asia and Campaign Asia. Now as the Chief Creative Officer of TBWA\ Group New Zealand I have helped the lead agency’s resurgence into being one of New Zealand’s top 3 agencies.
Personally, I have won over 200 awards at Cannes, D&AD, Clio, Spikes, One Show, AWARD, Axis, Effies, Webbys and Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas, and been lucky enough to have been ranked as one of the top ten Executive Creative Director’s in the world by the WON report.
I have a very simple philosophy when it comes to advertising - Make stuff people love, with people you like. This has led to work that is innovative, modern, fun and always interesting.
Outside of work, I enjoy a quiet life with a patient wife, two less than patient teenage boys, a bitey orange cat named Steve and mischievous orange dog named Kevin.
