I have always enjoyed being part of the very early stages of a new project.
And I love Strategy. So if you can get me involved in your project as
early as possible the results will likely be better.
One of my fortés is creative concept development. This has traditionally
been for advertising and marketing campaigns, but I've also been used
for product and service development brainstorming as well as simply being
someone with an outside perspective, with a creative bent.
I am a trained copywriter and love making connections with people through
the written word. I can write in many styles but my most natural style
is a blend of conversational and sales.
I am happy working with other teams and have worked as a Creative Director,
managing creative departments for most of my career. I have always been
a hands-on Creative Director, which has usually meant longer hours, but
that's the price you pay for chasing excellence and doing what you love.
I've included Change Management as a string to my bow as I have had a few
assignments whereby I have been hired to shake things up or calm things down.
Feel the love people. Chuckle. Two of these projects were during agency
mergers, where very different cultures clashed.

a pleasure working with someone fresh, interesting and level headed,
who knows what a client needs." NZ POLICE MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS
