Throughout that time I have been involved in numerous projects for large blue-chip companies such as BP, Shell, BMW, Sainsbury’s and GlaxoSmithKline.
I have a strong creative background, having worked on projects that involve numerous forms of media such interactive CD-ROM creation, fashion print design, viral marketing, music composition, gallery shows, conceptual design and the development of marketing concepts to drive new business using online activities. To balance this creative flair I have also been involved as a project manager in large scale projects, working with customers, third party resources and a team of designers and I have run my own company. Often working against tight deadlines, I’ve used my initiative and skills to achieve success.
