Hi. I'm Sarah. I write ads by day and other things by night. Sometimes, people give me shiny things because of it (see below). 
I'm currently a Creative at FCB Inferno, based in London. Nice to meet you.
I was born in Los Angeles and spent half a decade in New York (with a brief stint in Buenos Aires) before landing in the UK. I've hopscotched through jobs in advertising, TV news, documentary film, event production, education policy, and scientific research.

Past responsibilities include:
- dodging dozens of legally protected peacocks whilst driving a pick-up truck with exceptionally bad brakes; 
- designing a haunted house experience entirely run by mobile phones; 
- ensuring meth addicts didn't violate research protocols;
- chasing teenage girls around with a drone during a hail storm whilst encouraging them to play football;
- getting a seven year old to even MORE entertainingly destroy a cake;
- and amusing guests on a national morning show between the hours of 4-8AM. 

Essentially, I'm game for anything. I just like telling stories and figuring out how things work. 

The Internet and I are secret handshake-level tight. I say things like "super cool" and "awesome" and really mean them. I can't find anything wrong with robots, lasers, or Hollywood-style massive explosions.

Get in touch if you like what you see.
