Public speaking

I'm the Founder and Managing Director of Night Zookeeper; a magical, inspirational brand where children discover and create imaginative animals. These animals join our interactive world, feature in story books and on playing cards.

I'm a passionate public speaker on games, education and creativity. I've spoken at many international conferences including: MipJunior, Apps World, Future Book and the Children's Media Conference. Additionally I have been interviewed across BBC stations in the UK and have given keynotes at Creative Mornings London and more.

Prior to founding Night Zookeeper I worked in digital marketing for a variety of organisations including Fleishman-Hillard, the world’s second largest communications agency. In my time there, I worked as a strategist and consultant, advising on holistic digital strategy. I consulted for clients spanning a broad range of industry sectors, on a diverse selection of communication issues. In 2010 I was presented with the employee of the year award.

I was one of the first students in the country to complete an MA in Digital Art and in every professional role I've had, I've tried to retain my creativity and enthusiasm for new approaches and ideas. I feel that it is this willingness to experiment in my work, that led to me being recognised with several industry awards.

I love start-ups and my first professional experience was as Marketing Manager for a company called Terapad.com. Terapad operates over 10,000 websites in 156 countries including national landmarks such as the world-famous Cutty Sark. I planned campaigns across a range of digital and offline media, liaising directly and heading a team of key account managers that dealt with Terapad Resellers from across the globe.
