About

EDUCATION:

I'll be honest here. I spent most of my university daze talking utter nonsense in shady northern pubs. I did come out with a degree though - a 2:1 in design and art direction, specialising in writing for advertising.

I also have 3 A-levels, a load of GCSEs and a hefty student loan bill.

EMPLOYMENT HISTORY:

I started my career at Pravda Advertising in Manchester, where I did pretty much everything from making tea for creative directors to writing pitch-winning TV campaigns.

Next I moved to Virgin Media, where I helped launch the biggest ever Virgin company and once asked Richard Branson why he looks so much like a lion.

I currently work at Bluefrog in Hoxton square, home of the semi-ironic moustache. It's here that I write online and DM campaigns for some of the UK's leading charities.
