Project I am Proud of

Casting and securing Adwoa Aboah for Kurt Geiger’s Autumn/Winter 2022 campaign. It was the first project I worked on by myself after starting at R&CPMK and the client was extremely pleased with our casting suggestions and how Adwoa brought the campaign to life.

Favorite Memory Here

Driving through my hometown of South London and seeing billboards with the Kurt Geiger campaign live. The best part of the job is seeing a campaign go live/come to life knowing you had a role in its success.
