I like originality, I appreciate most people like conformity, if your a bit a like me, perhaps not wanting to be the leader of the pack or doing the next big thing, preferring to simply provide something that exceeds expectations whilst full filling all requirements... I might just be able to help...
The starting point to achieve development is to get someone who can analyse all associated elements and then provide an outline to all parties concerned.
I have quite a unique cross section of experience and skills, from business to product... take a look
An extra set of hands, pair of eyes and ears all attached to a fully conversant human being.. really quite useful at times...
Interactions, whether these be internal, digital, part of a new awareness campaign or measurable response mechanisms, each one needs to be clear, achieve your goals and be actionable... talk to me
You'd get a lot more tech, a lot more resource and a lot more people employed on any project you employed an agency for...
So why come to me?
You can still go to an agency, however come to me first and you will be able to employ the agency with a very clear instruction.
WHAT i DO
From outline and configuration designs for websites, databases and packaging through to finished artwork for print or digital.
Product analysis and strategy, systems and communications, through to concept works and project management.
Back-up for data, databases, artworks, pitches and content updates.
Internal and external communications, analysis, updates, marketing and reporting , providing independent assistance to achieve your goals.
I have studied business, design and food sciences as well as areas such as product management and analytics with keen interests in many areas of design and foods. I have extensive experience working in employed positions and have created many products and marketing promotions utilising my own designs. I have spent approximately 11 years within the entrepreneurial landscape.
iQ series, various independent works across the UK, namely Chester and Henley-on-Thames.
Manchester Business School, marketing and sales support for two intakes, based in the North Wales office. I exceeded all targets.
Artavia Advertising, multiple account management across traditional and digital media, always a top ten achiever.
Marketing executive roles extend to areas of training programmes, organics, financial products, property and charitable products.
Hotels, retail and foods works extend across almost all areas.
I'm one of those people that cause computer algorithms problems.
Because of this I thought Id write a few lines that perhaps make sense of a CV that looks a bit like I must be in my 60s and perhaps a bit erratic.
Essentially, I have invariably had hobbies and projects on the go, these have consistently generated considerable interest, and as such have grown.
I have therefore often had my own projects running alongside employment. I have successfully started a number of small businesses, worked in numerous hotel and tourism roles and worked to quite high levels within equestrian, chef and design activities.
I have never had a big career break or been rich, I have achieved a lot and... met a lot of people. I am a professional with qualifications and many, many years experience.
During 2016 I launched a small collection of gifts and greetings ranges, which are available through retailers and online. I am continuing with these works and would be happy to hear from crafters and professionals interested in joining me to take it to another level.

If you need someone to analyse, develop and deliver whilst supporting your existing team, call me.

past projects and activities
Continuing on from the foodie, nutrition and chef works I created some calendars for 2017.
With a focus on herbs and spices and seasonal fresh ingredients the calendars provide a series of vibrant photography featuring kitchen gardens and ingredients alongside original recipes through the seasons.
All elements created through my own food and photography, predominantly utilising adobe,
providing a useful,
and recipe collection.
First creating a series of postcards from the river bank during the regattas of 2010 and subsequently a series of designs I have now created a range of cards featuring my own artwork, oil paintings, sketches and sculpture.
My paintings tend to be large oils
on canvas and I have generated a
wealth of study material, some
drawing inspiration from well
known artists, others being quite
The most recent addition is the range of foodie cards, picturing
some classic and original dishes,
crafted and created by myself
and encouraging and celebrating
those social occasions
we look forward to.
I have built an extensive portfolio of projects ranging from food items and packaging through to furniture design and items for the home.
Ohh Christmas tree and
Big Ted Little Ted were a
series of foodie products
and associated products.
First created in 2012
Cheeseboards and home
accessories, prototyped and
designed to provide aesthetic
and bespoke temperature
Furniture designs extend to tables and sideboards, mostly done using natural and reclaimed materials and were on display at my show room just outside of Henley on Thames.
A series of sites have been built and test marketed since 2006, at the time of building they offered completely unique resources for the user with a focus on facilitating marketing for the small independent business providing something special and often handcrafted or highly skilled.
It is these works that I consider
to be most valuable and the ones
that I tried to launch commercially,
however due to resources and
circumstances have eventually
decided to remove the published
sites from the public domain.
The works are still relevant and I hope that I will be in a position to launch a lifestyle collection at some point in the future and would be happy to collaborate with anyone wishing to do something similar.
I have also outlined a number of new
sites that I would be prepared to
collaborate on, these range
from resource sites to
Design and Print
Having an element in most of my roles since 2000 I have
also completed a number of freelance works, some of
these allowed a bit of creative freedom, requiring to be
cost effective and efficient forms of communication.

foods sector, an independent
promotion for a new site I
launched early 2007.
