Described by PR Week's Power Book as a 'canny agency veteran' (as in grey flecked and with epic memories of the noughties), I bring 20 years of MD and senior agency leadership, creative and strategy roles (Wild Card, Frank, Publicis, Porter Novelli) into an independent PR and comms offer.


I can be the positive pain in the backside your business or agency needs with insight always grounded in commercial reality. 

My clients benefit from a rollercoaster of experience with clarity around what works and what doesn’t. And from knowing how to gain attention, build powerful brand narratives and the fanbases that follow them, and fight fires.



I have been an elected PRCA council member, taken agencies to the point of sale, accepted and lost awards with varying degrees of grace, and have always worked at the coalface alongside the teams I have led. 

Experience matters, and the value you gain comes from my work with both market leaders and the challengers to those thrones, including:

McDonald’s - Diageo - M&S - Highland Spring - Tilda  - New York Bakery Co - Tetley - Premier Inn - Whitbread  -  Gin Mare - Heathrow Airport - Universal Pictures - Centrepoint  -  Zebra - World Duty Free
