About me

I’ve spent 20 years as a Planner/Strategist, working with and for some of the biggest and brightest agencies in the North of England.

I’ve been employed as a Planner by CWG, Poulters, Brahm/Brass, Bloom (now Jaywing Leeds) and First 10 (now part of IMA-Home) – the last two as Head of Planning. I’ve also freelanced for Savvy, CreativeRace, Golley Slater, Principles, Intermarketing, Journey Further and Live & Breathe among others.

My deep sector experience includes retail, grocery, foodservice and health/fitness and in my last two roles I worked on significant pieces of strategic work for Boots Hearingcare, DW Sports Fitness (pre-Covid, the UK’s biggest end-to-end exercise business) and Xtend Barre Australia.

I’ve repositioned a brand in 36 hours flat, got under the skin of fitness fans in countries I’ve never set foot in and tend to get quite excited in retail parks as so much of my past work is on display.
