Having started life as a historian it was more a twist of fate rather than grand design that got me hooked on a career in advertising. Some of my most recent adventures have taken me to Korea, Japan, China, London and Dubai.

I love what I do because of the people I meet and the cultures I’ve had the opportunity to explore. If there is one thing I have learnt it’s that life’s really about keeping an open mind; it’s the only way you’ll learn and keep learning. Creating new ideas really begins by challenging yourself.
