Quick, Curious & Very Capable
Originally a pro-musician and pr back in the day, I’ve been hooked on digital since ’94 when I created Europe’s first live music webcast and have never looked back. To give you a little context, there were around 8 million — not 2.92 billion – active internet users at that time!
Building on my formal education in business management, MIS and media production, I now have 20+ years experience in strategic communications — marketing, pr and corp comms — in Europe & the Middle East.
I work with a range of clients — from startups to major brands and agencies too. I have an affinity with tech-based products and ideas, data, sustainability, innovation, architecture, design — and with truly ambitious startups, brands, products or services.
I often develop and apply innovative approaches to communication by drawing on narratology, film, media and cultural theory and sociology. That’s all the lovely stuff to do with psychology and behaviours.
On the side I speak and am a visiting lecturer speaker at some cool universities including Syracuse, dept. of Innovation & Entrepreneurship in NY, Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam.
My clients span B2B/C & include …
