About

 

Born and raised in South Africa, I finished my degree in Creative Brand Communications at Vega School of Branding. After school, I travelled around Europe for a year before focusing on graphic design at a small design studio in Johannesburg.

I've had the opportunity to work on brands like: Coke Zero, Motorola,American Express, E*Trade, Nationwide Insurance, Skoda, the UN, UNESCO Lenovo, IBM and Coca-Cola.

I successfully pitched clients such as Coca-Cola, Lenovo & Jaegermeister.

I currently live in New York and work at Mother. Previously, I worked at Ogilvy & Mather New York for 4 years. Before that I worked in Prague Czech Republic at Leagas Delaney for 3 years.
