They say start small. So I started my career in a little Auckland agency and helped them win one of their biggest pitches to date. They were pretty stoked, and so was I, so I kept going, working all across Auckland at Whybin/TBWA, Ogilvy & Mather, ColensoBBDO, JWT and DDB. I managed to pick up a few shiny awards along the way. I also tutored a class of AWARD School students for 6 weeks, helping them go from 0 to 100, at a reasonable pace and land jobs at agencies around the country.
After 5 years of hanging out with Flight of the Concords and living in Middle Earth, I spent my life savings (and 4 months) scouring the globe looking for cool things to point a camera at.
I ended up in London at the end of 2017, working at Above+Beyond as a Senior Creative. As you read this, I'm still there, heading up projects on clients from OnePlus to Amazon to Meantime Brewing Co.
From big audacious integrated campaigns, to those posters you pretend to read at the urinal while not glancing to the left or right, over the last 5-ish years I've worked on it all. But happiest when selling in an idea that could potentially break the internet.
