Hello.
I'm Sadie. When I was nine years old, I realised my name is an anagram of 'ideas' – so naturally, I latched onto this coincidence, and made it my entire life. Now I have a growing list of ideas that I probably don't have enough time to complete before I die.

There's probably not a huge number of people on this planet that grew up on a coastal dairy farm in rural South-East Ireland and then went to art college in Dublin and then moved to Boston to pursue a career in advertising, but I'm one of them.

I’m a strategically-minded, conceptual creative with a broad skillset, global perspective and ambition, and the ability to take a project all the way from a thought in my Notes app to delivery of a fully integrated creative campaign. 

When I’m not in work I’m fuelling various obsessions with art, sustainability, fashion, and music. I’m happiest whenever these spill over into my day job. 

You can piece together more about me and my professional experience on LinkedIn, or you can download a copy of my CV here. ✌️️
