My background is advertising and design.
Over the years I've enjoyed working both as a copywriter and art director, producing TV and print campaigns for clients as diverse as the Scottish Government, The Herald, Scottish Natural Heritage, Standard Life and IRN BRU.
I now combine both roles to come up with ideas and themes that can work across all sorts of communication channels.
As Creative in Residence, I'm here to generate lots of ideas, share my thought processes, explore new ways of working and learn more about social care.
At first I prefer to talk through my concepts with simple drawings. I find this encourages an open, collaborative way of working, and gets everyone talking and contributing.
