Truth Bombs :: How to make it in the media industry

‪I was pretty thrilled to be asked to speak to media students for National Apprenticeship Week. Usually when I speak, it’s to folks who know a thing or two, so to get a crack at talking to kids at the beginning of their explorations in the creative & media fields is an honour for a…

Techniques for idea creation // video interview

It was supercool to join Tom Breeze at his offices in London for an interview about my career path and the methods I use for ideation (idea creation). Be warned…at almost 2 hours long, this is a beast of a conversation, but it’s basically a crash course in the way creatives think, the methods we…

Quitting to Win

When I was a kid, I had braces. Twice. (note: they were 24kt gold. Don’t hate.) My teeth were straight before I got braces. And they were straight when they came off. And when they put ’em back on. But I digress. (never really sure if I’m using that phrase right) Fast forward to my…
