Born in New Zealand, I am a freelance Creative Director based in Tokyo. I have been working in the advertising industry since 1983, I have an impressive portfolio of award-winning work across mixed mediums including video, digital campaigns, posters, short films, and photography. My work covers many categories in advertising including automotive, luxury goods, cosmetics, tech, and a vast portfolio of tourism projects.

 

Today, I mainly focus on global communications for Japanese brands. As an independent Creative Director, I am based in Tokyo but I travel all over the world on collaborative projects. My talent and impeccable eye have won me international recognition at award shows in the US, UK, France, and other countries. I have worked for numerous ad agencies in New Zealand, Australia, and Japan before starting my own venture.

 

As an English-speaking foreign Creative Director living in Japan, I am often handpicked as the lead by local agencies to direct and manage campaigns. I am also an accomplished artist with a passion for creating original artwork and design projects including Tokyo Trash, Plastic Neon, A dog’s life, and Shit Happens.
