Hi and welcome!

If you’re looking for a creative with a strong eye for brand strategy then you’ve come to the right place. I’m just as comfortable writing a creative brief as I am receiving one. Weird.. I know.
Over the past 10 years I've lived in Dubai as a creative at the award-winning agency Ogilvy, freelanced in London, Paris & Amsterdam for advertising agencies and helped start-ups with their brand strategy and marketing.
Most recently you would have found me at Refinery29 as their Creative Lead in the branded content department. There I led a team of creatives and worked for brands like Samsung and Nike.

Aside from the stuff that keeps my bank balance happy, I was elected first ever president of non profit org SheSays London in 2017 and also re-launched their mentoring arm, Who's Your Momma, which is still active today.

But, I like to keep busy, so in 2017 I also launched The Freelance Circle. The FC gives freelancers a voice and invites them to anonymously review places (5 star ratings) they've freelanced with the aim to improve the gig economy.

I've been recognised for my work by: 
Campaigns Magazine's Future Female Leaders '17, The Hospital Club 100 '17 and most recently Creative Review's 'Creative Leaders 50' in 2018.
I also blurt my thoughts out to Campaign Magazine, The Marketing Society and Creative Review and have been heard chatting away on podcasts like this one and this one.
