From February 2020 to July 2021 I headed up and directed an extremly talented pool of creatives. This consisted of digital designers, content writers, video prodcuers and front end developers. Together we built brave creative to help further promote Dext as the one choice solution for Accounting and Bookkeeping firms across the globe.

My time at Receipt Bank delivered a new visual identity for the buisness. I lead a global creative team through a wide range of exciitng and challenging projects; including two redesingns of the website, the creation of extened products, lead generation campaigns and a host of marketing materials to better promote the product.



From November 2012 to November 2017 I headed up and built a full service creative team across the UK, US and AUS. Together we created all the businesses marketing material from the website through to in person events and everythign inbetween.

Whilst at Mimecast I introduced a new creative direction which posistioned the company for IPO and a long term future for growth.
