Executive creative director
BBC Creative

Born in sunny Bordeaux, I first came to England on a disastrous school trip when I was 10, and subsequently swore to never set foot again in rainy Blighty.

Fifteen years later, fate would eventually bring me back.
This time to wondrous Watford, where I met my now creative partner, Aidan McClure.

Together we would earn our first industry accolades, from best student team in the country, to AMV BBDO’s employees of the year, representing the UK at the Cannes young lions competition in 2009.

In 8 years, we’ve won more than 100 awards.
Creative highlights include integrated campaigns for the Metropolitan Police, John Lewis and Google.
We joined Covent Garden’s Adam&Eve in its early years before being promoted to creative directors shortly after the venture joined forces with DDB in 2012. During our time in W2, we looked after Volkswagen UK, Colman’s, John Smith’s, Amstel, the AA and McCain; and helped Adam&EveDDB win agency of the year at Cannes.
I have judged at D&AD, Campaign BIGs, The British Arrows, and Paris’ art directors club.

This year, the first day of spring saw the start of our new exciting chapter: executive creative directors at BBC Creative, the new in-house creative agency set to promote the British institution’s image and output
