Briefly. I’m a Londoner. I grew up in a multi-cultural community, where creativity was my outlet and something I was encouraged to pursue, despite the warnings that ‘It’s about who you know’. So with nothing but a vague plan to have fun creating work that makes people smile, I’ve put myself out there and been open to opportunities as they come up. In 2000 I landed my first creative role making promos for Cartoon Network, which set the tone for the rest of my career. When I started at Disney in 2013, I was surprised to learn I was the only in-house creative making content for advertisers. I saw a huge opportunity to build a team that would break the dependence on external agencies, bring creativity in-house and show just how much more can be achieved when you immerse yourself in the brand. It’s a fantastic, diverse and inspiring place to work, we still have so much to do. There’s definitely a place for collaborating with agencies and benefitting from outside innovation, but as the world’s best content creator we should be able to make a few ads ourselves!
