Sputnik is an author, speaker, story teller, adventurer, business strategist and internationally awarded creative who has worked at some of the world’s biggest advertising agency groups including Clemenger BBDO, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy both here in Australia and South East Asia. During that time he has worked across almost every business category imaginable for clients large and small including CocaCola Amatil, DaimlerChrysler, Hardys Wines, Caltex, Singha Beer, Disney, Unilever, The Simpsons, Tourism Australia and Mercedes-Benz.

In 2010 he won the AADC ‘Silver Watering Can’ Award for outstanding contribution to the Advertising industry and became a life member of the AADC.

He is the author of ‘The Swashbucklers Guide to Becoming an Astronaut’ and ‘The Swashbucklers Guide to Running Away from Dinosaurs’, the creator of ‘The Job Hunter’s Boot Camp’, is a regular blogger for Firebrand Talent, writes for various magazines, and if he’s to be believed, is currently working on his third book.

He’s written, shot and directed numerous videos, TV commercials and short films, and more recently has been dabbling in still images. He is also a regular guest on Radio ABC891 on the ‘Ethical Dilemmas’ panel.

Sputnik continues to consult for companies here in Australia and overseas developing innovative strategic and creative solutions. But more often than not, he can be found out in the middle of nowhere on some sort of adventure, on a road trip, or, when he’s not injured, running trails.
