I began my journey as an intern at 140BBDO in Cape Town, thereafter I joined EuroRSCG (now Havas JNB) as a Junior Art Director, for 3 years working on local & international brands in ATL mediums. TCC (The Creative Counsel) then scouted me to spearhead the newly opened BTL wing of their experiential agency. This new opportunity excited me, as it was a new challenge to broaden my skills in a different form of advertising. After a short stay there, FCB Joburg headhunted with an offer I couldn’t refuse to join their team as a Senior Art Director in 2014. At FCB I have had amazing opportunities to work on Global projects across multiple markets. Working with ATL & BTL has created a fresh & innovative perspective into my work. I feel the world of ATL, BTL & Digital are all merging, making it essential to be a multidisciplinary creative, as advertising has become an integrated melting pot.
