Career summary

My career was founded by starting my own events and production business in 2001 whilst studying Architecture. To expand my experience I have joined some of the leading agencies, like Ogilvy, EXP Group Africa and Penquin International.

More recently, I have been the MD of LIVE+ where I pioneered the Blue Ocean Strategy of “Connected Activation” in collaboration with a fantastic team, to drive the start-up digital, content and activation business into uncontested market place.

It’s simple. Ignite growth. Unleash results. Congruently.
