I am a designer, creative director, and team builder. With over a decade of experience in agencies and on in-house teams in the UK, New York, and San Francisco, I am proficient in design, illustration, and the Scottish accent.
I began my career with Freight, a leading creative design agency in the UK, before moving to the US. There I worked at Bureau Blank in New York for four years, a multi-disciplinary design consultancy driven by three key values: creativity, process and service. Along the way I was fortunate to work with clients like Ferrari, Amtrak, Salesforce, Bloomberg, Heineken, and NYU.
With one more major relocation I moved to San Francisco to work as Head of Communication Design at AppDirect. After four years building a fantastic team I recently left to join the Creative Team at Atlassian as a Design Team Lead.
With over a decade of agency and in-house experience I'm comfortable leading teams, working on websites, branding, designing for print, and illustration. I'd love to chat about how we could work together so please download my resume and get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
