National planning director at Maxus
Marketing and Advertising | Melbourne Area, Australia, AU
Entrepreneurial, passionate digital native. Can in fact see the woods for the trees, whether that's in media, comms, content or general digital. And can handle the trees themselves, especially in the new digital specialities of social and content.
If I'm not working with other smart, digitally-savvy people, I'm not interested.
I've been back in Melbourne since Jan 2012, after 4 years in London. Enjoying the warmth, the craft beer, and the good coffee.
