I’ve always wanted to work in advertising. I was lucky to get a job in EuroRSCG in London in the early 80s, just as the industry was taking off. I have a passion for simplicity and elegance in layout and have been fortunate to work in some great agencies, such as Faulds and 1576, on clients such as Elle Magazine, Scottish Government, Scotch Beef and The Macallan.
I joined The Union in 2006. In 2012 I was promoted to Head of Art. I’m passionate about my work and the industry, and have a bit of a reputation for scaring (or scarring) the account handlers. But I’m always nice to clients, and nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing a campaign getting noticed and getting results.
My passion for beautiful photography has led me to organising regular exhibitions in the Union offices for a range of talented Scottish photographers.
