My US Visa states I’m an
Associate Creative Director.

But really, I’m a designer that crafts ideas @Twitter for the world's largest media partners. I'm very fortunate to be able to do this from sunny Los Angeles.

 

Stay Young Inside. 

 

Middlesbrough - Manchester - London - Los Angeles.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me. Currently working as an Associate Creative Director @Twitter based in Los Angeles. I originate from Middlesbrough, and moved through both Manchester and London. I enjoy creating playful ideas that help the world's largest organizations innovate and engage with their Twitter audiences. I’m in a fortunate position to be able to influence how millions of Twitter’s users interact with the platform, their celebrity idols, and their sports teams every day. 

My creative adventure has taken me on a journey from high-end graphic design studios, large post-production houses, boutique digital studios and some of the UK’s most prestigious motion designs studios. I have had the opportunity publicly talk about design and advertising at the beautiful V&A Museum London and debate alongside some of the most talented creative folk at the D&AD Festival 2016. Being awarded a D&AD New Blood yellow pencil upon entering the design industry, I was then honored to be asked to judge the D&AD New Blood advertising awards. 

Alongside a full-time role at Twitter, I freelance design, illustrate and animate under the alias Stay Young Inside

Honestly, I'm very fortunate to be able to full-fill all my creative needs through multiple outputs and I have had the privilege to work with some truly talented people along the way.

It was once a dream to live and work in California and now it's a reality.
