Nothing is more satisfying to me than creating things that make people happy. A childhood building with Lego and writing jokes mutated into an interest in advertising and new media art. Founding Free Hype to gain experience in the former, I learned more about entrepreneurship and London's startup culture than I ever would have wanted to know.
I increasingly believe the worlds of agencies and startups will overlap. Brands will incubate startups whilst agencies will spin out successful side projects. I also believe the world faces huge challenges on a scale not seen before, and only the marriage of design and technology will solve them. I want to learn from anyone that thinks they can.
