I am a multi-award winning, interdisciplinary designer and technologist experienced in Art Direction, Branding, UI & UX Design, Graphic Design and Front-end Development.

 

............

In other words, I like to solve problems and create beautiful solutions that bring brand ideas to life.

I lead teams and collaborate to produce work that connects with consumers.

For the last 4 years I worked as Creative Director, leading the  RMG team at the DDFH&B Advertising Group, part of the JWT Network, before establishing myself as an independent creative.

I have worked with some of Ireland's biggest brand, on pan European campaigns and have won some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. My work has been selected as examples of best practice by ad networks and Google among others.

 I am an independent thinker with strong conceptual and planning skills plus full capabilities in Adobe Creative suite and a working knowledge of HTML5 and CSS.

I have strong strategic thinking ability and love to work with insights and planning tools to craft clever solutions that resonate.

I have a way with words too and write copy – I'm a bit of an all rounder.
