About

Over 20 years design experience.

I’ve run my own independent studios, led creative teams within iconic ad agencies – locally and abroad, and shifted my focus from agency to in-house design teams, most recently as the Executive Creative Director at Nedbank.

When tackling design problems, my approach is to take a more holistic view to consider the overall system, think about the long-term design direction, break problems down into smaller parts, exhaustively explore options, prototype, and validate hypothesis through testing and data.

Currently, I’m consulting with companies in need of Design Leadership and Direction, operational and team development, and advising leadership.

I also enjoy sharing my knowledge through my YouTube channel, Instagram stories, blog, speaking engagements, and as a Treeshake expert.
