An adrenaline junkie at heart, Paul, apart from being the creative force in the agency, specialises in high impact video and film production, and is certainly not afraid to head straight into turf where others fear to tread.

With Paul and David (The Two Old Dogs) at the helm, its easy to see why so many of our clients enjoy the energy, creativity and pace of the agency whilst getting the benefit of reliability and combined experience of over 50 years from its founders.
