What do you call a man with a spade on his head?

You call me a man who had to develop a sense of humour because all my life people have relentlessly insisted on telling that joke when they hear my name. I started out in comedy, theatre and TV. Now I love to write digitally savvy, entertaining content that finds a surprising way to deliver on brief. I'm an integrated copywriter happy to jump in on any conceptual conversation. I like to help my clients command comedy, character and storytelling to create distinctive and industry leading projects.

I've got 5+ years experience in freelance contracts ranging from one-day to over a year. In massive agencies, tiny production companies and direct to client. Agencies include McCann London & Paris, FCB Inferno, Sapient Nitro, VCCP Kin and Design Bridge. Production companies include: Hoot Comedy, The Edge Picture Company, Casual Films.

Clients include: Yahoo, KFC, Havaianas, British Airways & Open Skies, Nestlé, Cheerios, Sky Media, Vodafone, PwC, Compare the Market.
