After completing a PhD in Neuroscience, I entered advertising as a planner with M&C Saatchi, first in Melbourne and then in London. My career then took me into brand and marketing consultancy, with London independent ascension, working with bluechips like Unilever, Interbrew, Sony, Ernst & Young and easyJet in markets all over the world. In 2005 I arrived in Dubai and became a founding partner of creative hotshop The Tribe. Senior roles at Cheil Worldwide and JWT Dubai followed. In 2012 I joined The Talent Business to lead its Dubai office and provide our clients with access to the world’s and the region’s best creative talent as well as talent with a springboard to do great work and build rewarding careers.
