I have been with Dow for 18 years and Creative Director for eight. My design philosophy is simple - emotion rules. But emotion underpinned by fiercely rigorous strategic analysis, insight and fastidious craft – the love is always in the detail.

Originally from Manchester, I now call NZ home. I bring over 15 years of diverse creative industry experience to Dow. Having worked as a designer, I am always drawn back into production roles. Retouching is my passion & a hot cup of tea is essential.
