I help businesses build brands and generate commercial opportunities though better creativity. As a skilled copywriter, I’m passionate about the persuasive power of words as a marketing tool.

I have proven expertise in developing ideas and using creative processes that help you connect with your audience and engage their hearts and minds. Copywriting is a craft and I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from the best in the industry.

I have over twenty years of professional experience in advertising and marketing. From large agencies to small and from freelancer to agency owner, I’ve worked across most disciplines and a huge array of brands, local and global.

I learned my craft as a Copywriter through CopySchool, and was hired by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, where I stayed for 13 years developing campaigns across blue chip brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Nestle, Just Jeans, Four ‘n Twenty and Yellow Pages.

Following stints in many of Melbourne’s agencies as a freelance Copywriter and Creative Director, I opened my own agency to work with clients looking for direct access to the creative process.

As owner of UBU Communications, I’ve worked independently and partnered with others on campaigns across advertising, design and digital media. Clients include Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Crown, Australia Post, Dulux, ANU, City of Port Phillip, the Victorian Government and Vietnam Airlines.

I work across all media – traditional and ‘new. I use creative disciplines across the communications spectrum that are proven to work: stand out, find ways to engage, get into people’s hearts, say compelling things in interesting ways and be true to the brand.

What do I do? I help brands and businesses communicate better.

Why? So the message is clear and people understand what’s on offer.

How? By talking to people respectfully, like they are grown-ups who might be interested in knowing what’s available.

What does that achieve? Interest. Trust. Preference.

Which leads to? Loyalty. Sales. Profit.
