Associate Creative Director at R/GA

David Ogilvy once said, "If each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants". Perhaps, that is why I was hired at Ogilvy in the first place. I measure 6’4”.

Jokes aside. In the last 5 years, I’ve built an automated camera system that helps amateur footballers capture their best goals, conducted extreme tests to demonstrate the performance of a mobile network, and even teleported snow from frosty Finland to sunny Singapore. These feats were recognised at prestigious, international festivals like D&AD, Cannes Lions, One Show and Spikes; helping Ogilvy Singapore to #2 in the One Show global rankings, #1 in the Lisbon Awards and #2 out of 450 Ogilvy offices. Basically, one of the top shops in the world.

I've taken the stage at AdFest to share my thoughts on how we can champion young creative talent in Asia. In 2016, I beat a string of creative teams in the Film category of the Mediacorp Young Lions to represent Singapore in the South of France and was also honoured as the Young Copywriter of the Year at the Creative Circle Awards.
