Three things about me: I was short-listed to play Barney in ITV's 1981 adaptation of "Stig of the Dump"; I'm a qualified (but non-practising) secondary school teacher; and I am, according to my dearly-departed art director, a "twat".

Now the professional stuff. My list of direct clients includes Attilus Caviar, The National Autistic Society, Ancestry.co.uk, Oxford University Press (NY), Speak Language School and the University of Westminster.

Working in-agency, I've freelanced all over London and in sunny Brighton at agencies like RAPP, GOOD Agency, On, Table19, Chemistry, Meteorite, Kitcatt Nohr, TBCH, McCann Enterprise and RMG Connect.

You can see where I worked full-time below. Apart from one, they no longer exist (I call it The Curse of Myers).

With 20 years' agency experience working with every type of imaginable account (unless you can imagine something pretty weird), I'm fiercely media neutral and passionately ideas-driven. I also like to sell my own work - I'm as comfortable in front of a client as I am in front of a layout pad.

One last thing. About 99% of the stuff you'll see here was done with the brilliantly talented and terribly nice Tim Jones (he's the art director who thinks I'm a "twat"). You can see his stuff here

Cheers,
