I'm a 6-year-old disguised as a 22-year-old. I work as a planner for JWT and you can find me writing a blog that I named the wanky planner blogas a safeguard because no one's interested in account planning apart from other planners and the minute you start talking about brands you sound a little bit silly.
I studied advertising (Manchester Met) and went on to work in the area because I think it's the closest I can get to changing how people think and feel without working in the public sector. That, and being a researcher felt lonely (sorry if you're a researcher).
I'm not like those cool people who drink flat whites and I'm definitely the wrong person to sit next to at a dinner party unless you want to talk about the typeface on the menu. I bore the pants off others because I'm into sociology, globalisation and the likes so between me and someone who went to school with that guy on the X Factor, I know who might win.
Right now you might want to skip straight to Facebook.
