Along the way he has been behind innovative and award winning content, picking up accolades from Cannes Lions to FoST Jury Prizes.

Quote: “It’s most often our peers that recognise the craft, passion, blood, sweat and tears that go into our work, these awards are about us all doffing our cap to those of you who really nailed it. I look forward to seeing some fresh thinking, with the audience at its heart, that delivered some true value”
