– Present

View full profile



Currently freelancing as a Creative Team with my partner Louisa Whitehead (Shrimp). Feel free to get in touch with any opportunities.

Find us here:


I’m a northern monkey, Bakewell tart fiend, ex Byker Grover, straight talking (with a slight twang), nutrition nutter, that comes with being a fond exercise go’er, battered mars bar promoter, beach and surfing enthusiast, conceptual creative, Art Director, canny lad, Adam.

Creating Immersive, captivating stories are my passion and telling them visually is my A game. Blessed with this native tongue, my words are better heard than read.
