Be true to yourself and express it beautifully.

I co-founded Truth & Spectacle so that I could work with all kinds of people and companies, from scale-ups to multinationals, who want to discover the truth that’s at the heart of their organisation and to enable it to be expressed beautifully through products, services, stories and behaviours.

I'm also proud to be the Creative Director for what3words, a company helping everyone talk about everywhere. We’ve built a remarkable team who are defining a new role for creativity in business.

Previously, I’ve been Worldwide Creative Director for Dove, Dove Men, Unilever and Philips, building and leading multi-disciplined and multi-agency creative teams at Ogilvy and adam&eveDDB.

I've collected major awards from most of the international shows, including Grand Prizes, Grand Prix and Golds for Integrated Campaign, Effectiveness, Cyber, Print, Social, Film, Product and Strategy. My work has also been included as case studies in TED Talks, marketing textbooks, business books, and parody videos.

I give talks and workshops and encourage creatives to be great business thinkers. I also draw a decent birthday card.
