About Me

Advertising is so much more than a career for me.  I am, and will always continue to be, absolutely fascinated by the impact that it has on our daily lives, and thus strive to learn as much as I can about it.  Having already gained over 13 years of practical experience, I continue to be inspired by the creativity inherent within the industry and the new channels that are emerging.

 

I am now an accomplished Advertising and Marketing specialist offering integrated marketing and account direction across a vast array of different platforms and media channels, but am always eager and strive to learn new skills.

With many years of industry experience in Toronto, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, I am now seeking my next challenge in my career. I have worked on a vast array of local, national and international clients and have managed numerous integrated campaigns through to delivery that have gone on to win many local and national awards. I have experience in both traditional and digital media and am always pushing my clients and colleague’s to think ‘outside the box’ and utilise non-traditional and content driven channels and ideas to make an impact.

 

My passion is campaign development and management, in particular working with clients and partners to develop strategies and collaborate with and inspire multiple teams to deliver and produce the best possible solution. I like nothing more than a business challenge to tackle the status quo and I always strive to find new ways to be more effective for the benefits of my clients. I also have extraordinary attention to detail, meticulously organised and take great pride in the work that I do. I am an incredibly passionate and easy-going person and feel incredibly lucky to be working in an industry that both fascinates and challenges me.

 

I have never been afraid to take a risk when I know the outcome is worth fighting for and am not afraid to work hard to achieve it. With experience of managing various different teams, as well as fostering relationships with external stakeholders, clients and partners, I am confident that I am able to inspire and motivate others to do the same. 

I am now available in Perth for any permanent or freelance opportunities. I would also consider working remotely and am happy to offer my services to help you in your marketing efforts, whether it be for a one-off strategy or campaign, ongoing social media or marketing management or even a one-off project or task to help you in your time of need.

 

Should you need any help, or would like to talk to me about any opportunity, please feel free to contact me.
