About

As a multi-platform Director, Creative Director & Entrepreneur in the media, entertainment & technology space, I create unique digital experiences through the fusion of technology and storytelling. Having worked in and with almost every aspect of the creative pipeline including Agencies, Production, Post production & Digital houses, I understand clients business challenges and how creative thinking & my diverse talents can be applied to solving them. I have directed commercials, brand communications, TV shows, motion designs, visual effects, augmented reality & other digital productions for brands like: Audi, Blackberry, Apple, The OneClub, Appletiser, Fanta, Sasol, Cell C, Hansa, Castle Lager, DStv, The African Union, Nando’s & Metro FM as well as co-developed from original concept, 3 children’s TV shows. Many of my projects are integrated, requiring the delivery of cross platform components for digital and mobile platforms as well as traditional TV and print media. In 2015, after 7 years as a business owner I left Pollen, an animation & post production company I co-founded & served as exec. creative director since 2008 to again reinvent myself & my role in the creative industry. I am currently represented as a film and Digital Content Director by Darling, through whom I produce interactive films, branded content, AFP, 2nd screen supplementary content & interactive components. By fusing technology & storytelling I create deeper experiences and value through relevant digital executions. Between Darling projects I am available as an independent creative director, designer, animator, compositor & VFX artist, working most recently with Sinister Studio & Left Productions. For freelance booking & inquiries, contact me via [email protected] In this digital age where concepts need to be adapted & relevant on various channels I seek to share knowledge and experience with Agencies, Production companies & Clients as a content, digital & production expert.
