About Me

Things I like to say:
"Life is not a dress rehearsal", "Work hard, play hard" and of course "Live your brand!".
Read below to learn a little bit more about me.

So I’m kind of a fanatic when it comes to all things branding. Branding is one of the most powerful strategic elements to organisations, and because of my absolute belief in the power of branding I have spent the last 12 years exploring this wonderful world and I am nowhere near finished. I am on a journey, or as I like to call it an adventure, that will see branding take centre stage. Branding we know is much more than a logo but there are still questions over what the ‘much more’ actually is. Areas I am really passionate about are collaboration, education and asking questions.

Currently, I am the Managing Director and Chief Brand Strategist of The Pudding. So what is The Pudding all about?! The Pudding branding agency really believes in The Proof of The Pudding. Your brand is the most valuable asset you have and creating and building a great brand is one of the most important investments organisations make. Through our signature approach we bring new brands to life and we breathe new life into existing ones. We work on your brand strategy, brand identity, the brand experience you offer, your brand objectives, your brand culture and how you manage your brand day in and day out.
