My name's James, but you can call me Giant.
I’m into sneakers, surfing and being tall.
I’m also into advertising.
That’s why I'm a Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi New York.
Prior to Saatchi I was an Associate Creative Director at DDB NY. Before that I worked at Colenso BBDO and DDB in New Zealand, Berlin and Sydney.
I've worked across all manner of clients. In the States that includes Reebok, New York Lottery, Hertz, Vita Coco, Duracell, and Chase.
In NZ, when I wasn’t listening to Lorde or watching Lord of the Rings,
I worked on New Zealand Lotteries, Sky TV, Volkswagen, 3 of New Zealand's 5 major banks, McDonald's, Cadbury and DB Breweries.
I've been awarded at Cannes, Clio and One Show. I've also had work accepted in-book at d&ad (and while that’s not technically ‘winning’ I’m still happy about it because D&AD is bloody hard).
