I've been called the Lewis Capaldi of Advertising...
But I'm really just your standard Irn Bru drinking, tartan loving, borderline ginger, Glasgow girl from Dorset.
I have a Masters in Creative Advertising and I have been lucky enough to win a Yellow Pencil, Gold Creative Conscience Award and Nods Award.
Outside of my career I love travelling the world with an ugly doll named Mags and I have passion for taking scraps and putting them in a book.
Now We're Here
I'm now one half of a London-based Scottish/Welsh creative duo with the wonderful Lucy Donagh.
Our experience encompass everything from print to PR, but our main love is in social and experiential.
We love a challenge so if you have any advertising needs, get in contact and put us to the test!

D&AD New Blood Academy
Was offered full access to 2020's online version of D&AD New Blood Academy, working with other creatives to produce campaigns for a variety of agency briefs for Malibu, Superdrug, AirBnb and PUMA.

Global Pandemic Hit
This was where I met my beautiful creative partner, Lucy Donagh! The academy was a two-week-long intensive course learning everything there is to know about strategy.
We worked separately on live briefs from Mother as junior strategists, collecting qualitative and quantitative research, producing insights and strategic outcomes from the findings. We presented to a room of 30 experienced strategists and researchers.
We participated in workshops and pitches from Proximity, TBWA, St Luke's, TRO, Elvis, ENGINE, Edelman, 1000 Heads, RAPP and YouGov.
Took a Gap Couple of Months
NOV 2019 - JAN 2020
In no way relevant, but any excuse to show some holiday pics and reminisce (brag) about drinking coconuts in Indonesia and van life in New Zealand.

On my Gap Yaaaahr
Took my lil' Clio and drove around Europe with nothing more than an atlas, tent and a babe of a sleeping bag.
Graduated with a 2.1 in Fine Art, specialising in print making and sculpture. During my time there I played hockey, tested my liver capabilities and lived in a caravan in East Sussex because I couldn't find a flat to stay in during a summer placement.
Won Six Foot Galleries
Best of Degree Show
The Boring Blur
2007 - 2016
There is not much to be said here, I went to High School, I went to Uni. I got braces. I got a full fringe. Safe to say it wasn't my most attractive phase.
I did spend a month in Australia, but realistically the majority of time was spent sleeping, snacking and trying to find creative excuses for why I hadn't finished my homework.
The Cute Years
Nov 94 - 2006
Need I say more? Hopefully not cause there really is nothing else to say.
