A WELSHMAN LIVING AND WORKING AS AN ART DIRECTOR IN NEW YORK
From Wales to Wall Street via Amsterdam. 

After six years trying to work out the 'how many beers' to the 'can I still ride a bike' ratio in Amsterdam. I moved stateside to work out how many pizza slices it takes for me to vomit. (it’s seven)

Previously art director-ing at 180 Amsterdam.
Currently art director-ing at Droga5 NY. 

After hours you’ll find me pounding the pavement, being a beer & whiskey connoisseur (in the loosest sense of the word) and exploring some far-flung land in search of the cure for receding hairlines.
