Career history

I started at Ogilvy & Mather in 1991. Since then I've been lucky enough to work at CDP, Lowe Howard-Spink and TBWA, and I joined Rainey Kelly in 2004. Along the way, I've worked for some great people who helped me way more than was reasonable - Alan Midgeley, Nick Welch and Billy Mawhinney, Alfredo Marcantonio, Guy Moore and Tony Malcolm, Paul Weinberger, Steve Dunn, Charles Inge, Trevor and, best of all, Mark Roalfe, James Murphy, David Golding, Alison Hoad, Tony Harris and all the gang at RKCR/Y&R.
