For the past couple of years I have been the shed-bound editor and compiler of The Lost Book of Adventure - published by Frances Lincoln & Quarto - released into the wild, March 2019.

Before my shed years, I've been a London based creative director dabbling in global campaigns for well known brands, launches and virals, including Photoshoplooter, still one of the internet's most shared meme's.

Beyond advertising I'm a tinkerer of coloured pencils, wanderer of wild places, sometime contributor to the Guardian newspaper, and am known in Finland as Teddy the Penguin... it's a long story.

I live in North London with my wife and two children.
