I can't recommend A. enough. He's a top writer who understands the TTL environment. He takes immense pride in what he does and will give you great ideas well executed.
He just happened to be a top man as well.

Account Director

I have had the privilege of working with A. for the better part of three years, at two different agencies, and across varied portfolios and accounts.

Working in Key Account Management I have found A. to be the person I know I can turn to to get the job done, to constantly interrogate the creative, strat and client service, challenging us all to look beyond the brief and ultimately deliver the best creative for client.

A. is an inspiring leader - reliable, with a can-do attitude and a cheerful demeanor. He is passionate about the creative product, and instills a similar vigilance and high standard in everyone he works with, working closely with the creative teams under him to guide and grow them.

A. is accountable, hard-working and motivated; and he does it all with a sense of humour and a lighthearted manner that makes working with him fun and engaging. He would be an invaluable asset to any company.

A. is an all-rounder. An all-round great guy with a witty sense of humour that makes working with him both entertaining and challenging. He is also an all-round great copywriter and creative director.
A. pushes himself and everyone around him to achieve the best they can - whether it be the creative, the production or the client service.
A. demands perfection from those in his team but he demands it equally of himself which makes him a great leader, team player and an asset to any agency and client.

Given the opportunity, I would work with him over and over again.

A. was a great guy to work for. He is hardworking, no nonsense, copy ninja by day and and an enthusiastic and pro-active creative dreamer by night. He is easily approachable as a creative director and really keen to impart his knowledge and skill set onto others.
