A creative insurgent and tactical scribbler, I’m your typical ‘Creator’ and
‘Explorer’ archetype. I spend my days coming up with stuff,
selling-stuff-in and making stuff for advertising agencies, brands, design
studio’s and other less interesting places.
I’m addicted to creativity, its one of the things I value the most. I
chase the dragon wherever it may take me, I've done things I'm proud of: spent
money I didn't have, blown off friends and family, lost girlfriends over it.
Travelled across oceans, lied to bosses about my whereabouts and even risked my
life in scary places most people with common sense would be too afraid to set
foot. All in the name of igniting that “spark.”
I’ll profess that I’m a glutton for punishment of late nights and the
pressure of a looming deadline. You might say I’m a student of the game and in
it for the long haul. I’m fortunate that I’ve worn many hats over the years and
manoeuvred between the cracks, so I’ve taken an expansive approach to
cultivating my expertise by building a square-shaped skillset grounded in
design thinking, art direction, conceptual planning and research. This makes me
quite a hybrid type because I align both the strategic and tactical and that’s
where the magic happens.
My hope is that when I die I want to be seen as someone defined by his
irreverent attitude towards the status quo. Someone who was attracted to bold
behaviours in creating something ‘new’, along with of course a distinct sense
of humour, taste and creativity.
I don’t think its too much to ask for...
