Hello! I'm Celia.

I'm a copywriter from Australia, currently living and working in New York.

After graduating Top 10 at Award School, widely recognized as Australia's primary creative advertising school, I started in the creative department at Clemenger BBDO. Here I learnt how to present, pitch & win business, and work on a variety of accounts from big brand to tactical, travel to FMCG, charity to QSR. A few of the clients I have worked on include Tourism Australia, V Energy, Japan Airlines, Doritos, Sunbites, Pepsi Max, Wrigley’s, Hungry Jack's, Red Rock Deli, HP, and Dry July.

Favourite ad: Starburst - Berries & Cream
Favourite internet wormhole: Never Tell Me The Odds
Favourite ad in-joke: The Incumbent Agency

I have worked as an Art Critic for youth radio station FBi, where I wrote and recorded reviews weekly. I have also worked in NYC at Art Forum magazine, the world's leading art magazine.

In 2017 I co-created the Award School Alumni, which endeavoured to keep the community of Award School graduates connected with a series of industry talks about advertising and creativity in general.

When I'm not working, I enjoy walking at an unusually fast pace, blushing easily, getting way too into a casual trivia game, and typing at 80wpm.
