About me
After being told at that I'm not 'creative', I'm proud to say I now write & direct branded content, and have done it for the likes of Facebook, Rude Health and Simba (The mattress company, not Mufasa's son) I'm also part of Mid-Brow, a sketch comedy duo, with the late Tom Blackwood. He’s not dead, he’s just notoriously bad at time-keeping. We performed at The Pleasance and have appeared on the BBC, notching up over 1,000,000 views and screening at BAFTA and the BFI. And that's enough about me.
Projects
  • Netflix "Too Hot To Handle" Urgent Weather Report
    Netflix "Too Hot To Handle" Urgent Weather ReportToo Hot To Handle - a show which deducts money from contestants for any form of sexual contact. So, to celebrate their new season, I wrote and directed this film campaign, which was all about trying to squeeze as many innuendoes into a weather report as I possibly could. Apparently I was the "pefect" person for the job. Still not quite sure what that says about me...
  • HelloFresh Mockumentary Series with Emily Atack
    HelloFresh Mockumentary Series with Emily AtackA serious career highlight for me. Commissioned by The Smalls, I wrote and directed a 3-part mockumentary series for HelloFresh starring Emily Atack. Here's the series trailer and episode 1. Hope you enjoy them.
  • &Ugo "Happy Days"
    &Ugo "Happy Days"For agency &Ugo, they wanted a social film to tell everyone they were back in work. So we made a 70's themed intro sequence... and I got to army roll under some falling shutters.
  • Beefeater Gin
    Beefeater GinGiven I've just had my first haircut without a beard trimmer, this piece of work feels like it was made for a different time. However, am still immensely proud of it. Working with the brilliant Thumbstoppers - was a great project to work on.
  • Rude Health 'Be your own barista'
    Rude Health 'Be your own barista'I created 3x films for Rude Health, all around encouraging people to 'Be your own Barista'. Crucially we wanted to tell people not to be their own barrister...as that would be reckless.
  • Hot Topic: Palm Oil
    Hot Topic: Palm OilTo draw attention to the devastating effects Palm Oil plantations are having on biodiversity and wildlife, we wrote and performed a sketch called Hot Topic. A lot of people on Facebook thought it was real, so we're not sure if we overshot satire and went straight into reality TV.

    Alex CooperAll she’d wanted was for her mum to have called. But even that was too much. Apparently. As her sister B finished her charming yet tuneless rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’, Margot made her wish. But it wasn’t a happy wish. It was sad, lonely and friendless. She wished that for one day, one hour, or even one minute, that her love would stop for someone who clearly had no love for her. And as her eyes welled up with tears, on what should be her favourite day, she knew it was the one wish that co
