I’m a strategist with a dark secret – I used to be a corporate lawyer. I’ve been with Wolff Olins since I made the switch to the creative world in 2009 and I’ve experienced a crazy mix of challenges and opportunities in that time. Working across continents (Europe, Asia and the Americas) and across sectors: technology, finance, media, retail, culture, helping some of the biggest brands in the world do exciting new things, including Nike, Amex, PwC and Spotify.
This is a place that encourages everyone to be themselves: bringing their quirks, passions and opinions to bear on the work we do and culture we create. The projects I’m most proud of are those that tap into things that I really care about. Like helping the arts thrive across a country by shifting Qatar Museums from a slow-moving institution to a cultural instigator. Or banding together with local charities, businesses and school kids in Kings Cross, London to create the Honey Club – a social enterprise that connects communities through bee-keeping.
