I have been working in digital for over 10 years and had the privilege of working alongside and managing some great designers, developers, project managers and everything in-between. I currently work at Publicis Emil where I lead the UK Digital Experience creative team producing online and retail POS products & experiences for Mercedes-Benz, the #1 premium automotive brand in the world. During my time at Your Favourite Story I was a key member of staff who helped to grow the agency into a position where we achieved a spot on the Econsultancy Top 100 Digital Agencies list. I was also heavily involved in a number of large pitch wins for the agency, helping to create new revenue streams for the agency.   Skills and experience breakdown

   Outside of workAt the weekends I love nothing more than sticking the radio on and cook, with 6 music (Huey Morgan, Don Letts, Craig Charles or whoever is on) or 5 live to listen to the premier league, ideally Chelsea of course! 606 with Robbie Savage on a Sunday is brilliant so if you haven't listened then check it out. I also play poker every week in a pub poker league, game (PS4, Fifa or Fortnite) and go course and sea fishing.I am also working on my own app which has been parked for a bit but will get picked up again soon. I was lucky enough to get a months sabbatical from my work so I took off to Melbourne for a month with my uncle to explore the city and work on the app which was great fun.If you have a role you think I might be right for then drop me a message on linkedIn and let's have a chat
