I am currently VP, Creative Director at Paramount in the UK, leading a team of creatives, editors, print and motion designers to create key art and trailers for the launch of original commissions that live across a broad range of channels and platforms including Channel 5, My5, Pluto TV, Paramount+, Apple TV+, Prime Video and Netflix.

Before that I was Creative Director of Comedy Central, Paramount Network and Paramount+ for the UK and International.

And before that I worked on the BBC and UKTV accounts at Red Bee Media for 13+ years as a Creative / Director, alongside directing commercials, sponsorship idents and interactive animation series, all of which paid the bills while I worked on short films and feature scripts having been signed up by a big fancy agent off the back of a short film I made in 2005.

Career highlights so far include launching Tresemmé shampoo across Europe by mistake, filming the iconic 2’s singing “I Will Survive” for BBC Two’s 50th anniversary, standing in a soaking wet field crying with pride at how happy FriendsFest was making Friends fans, learning how to do in-house channel rebrands the hard way by just having to do them, investing heavily in short films instead of property, standing in another soaking wet field crying with shame at how unhappy Comedy Central Live was making Russell Howard fans, discovering that one of the feature scripts I was being paid to develop was actually being funded by a Russian oligarch who I had assumed was a runner every time we’d met, presenting Comedy Central promos to the President in the 52nd floor board room in Times Square, running creative workshops in Singapore and Streatham, very narrowly avoiding hitting Josh Brolin / Thanos with my bike on the canal path in Paddington and winning Turkey of the Week in Campaign magazine the same month as getting a BAFTA nomination. It is what it is, as they like to say on Love Island.
