In the twenty years I spent directing ads, I always wanted to get face-to-face with the client, to hear what really mattered to them. In my work with academics and students, I work one-to-one with some of the brightest minds in this country, turning their research and theories into powerful, new ideas for change.


Advertising and academia might seem worlds apart, but both demand the ability to draw from the research and data the compelling idea that will have impact. That is what I offer CEOs, businesses, charities and film production companies.

The originality of my work and the fresh perspective comes from a skillset that embraces writing novels, screenplays, TV comedy, directing ads and charity films and working in academia as well as my business writing.
