Started out as a freelance illustrator for a right-wing newspaper. Felt conflicted, so did what any sensible person would. Quit, moved to Cornwall, and began an MA in Creative Advertising.
One Distinction later (my mum cares, alright), I headed back north in search of sun, sand and opportunity. I found precisely one of those things.
I spent the next six years at CheethamBell. In that time I’ve written a few TV ads, some print, and once had an idea so terrible it was pinned onto the ‘wall of shame’ for a year. I picked up five awards though, so it can’t have been all bad.
I have lots of opinions about shop-bought puff pastry. I’ll tell you over a gin. I also own a mushroom brush, which means I’m detailed-orientated. Generally, I work like I cook: with manic precision, listening to old-school hip hop, and always in pursuit of something tasty.
