I am an art based advertising creative. I like to think up and art direct brand stories. Especially if I get to tell them with video, animation, experiential design or motion graphics.
I've worked globally.
That's how I've learned what annoys New Yorkers the most, what Oakland Californians do on Fridays, what Russians drink for breakfast, how Malay Indians spin their roti canai, what Chinese look for in a soup dumpling and how to make a mean som tam (green papaya salad, extra spicy). I also know how to text LOL in Thai. 555
I'm currently based in San Francisco.
(I am a US citizen authorized to work in the States.)
