Bachelor of Engineering (Industrial), MBA (IT/Marketing)
AKA 'GavDog' / 00G / Leroy
Working as a Senior Leader within Client and Agency environments has exposed me to all forms of online identity and brand marketing. I thrive on fast paced, creative environments that push me to deliver great work. I have a broad understanding of both the creative & technical process, having worked in design and technical roles for over 15 years.
My strengths are in team leading, identifying technology trends, project management (Agile), visual and interaction design, branding, online marketing, social media integration campaigns, site analytics, aesthetic design and creative problem solving.
My skills in building relationships are a result of constant, clear communication with my teams and with my clients (both internal and external).
From the smallest banner campaign or website update to the largest integrated interactive campaign, I have managed them all to successful delivery, for such prestigious brands including: Nike, FOX Sports, Estée Lauder, A/X Armani Exchange, The Standard Hotels, One & Only Resorts, L'Oreal, MILK studios, Veuve Clicquot, beats by Dr. Dre, Universal Music, The Zoe Report and QANTAS Airways.
My work has been recognized by the likes of: Cannes, LIA, One Show, D&AD, FWA, Campaign Brief, Webby, Designer's Toolbox, Adweek, Adage and Creativity.
