About me
I love telling stories. Whether that's for brands, fact or fiction. I'm a senior writer with an integrated advertising copywriting background, but I also write for online magazines such as The Spread (film makers), written about women's rugby, and published short stories and joke books. I've written over 100 corporate films and even directed a few too. I've written, produced and directed many hundreds of radio ads - love doing them in particular. Outside of advertising I make short dramas and documentaries as a film maker (for Hurcheon FIlms), and I've presented my plays at London fringe theatres. Despite the lockdown, I managed to shoot three short films in 2020 - a historical monologue, a horror short and a music video. These were completed in 2021 and all have won awards. I've also written a second audio script that will soon be released as a podcast through Towton Audio in 2022. I am currently in post production after directing the short script that won the Film Expo South Script to Screen award earlier in 2022. "Playing Away" written by Steve Langridge will be screened in September at the Film Expo South festival. I'm always looking for new collaborators and challenges. If you've got a story that needs telling, I've got just the words you need. And maybe the right images too.
Projects
  • Playing Away
    Playing AwayThis was the winner of the Film Expo South Script to Screen Competition. In May 2022, I directed the film, shooting locations around Hampshire, and this is now in the edit. It will be screened in September at the FIlm Expo South Festival.
  • Music Video "Stand as one"
    Music Video "Stand as one"This was a film I shot last year for the #MakeitBlue campaign supporting NHS charities. Every download of the track by Joe Bygraves results in a donation to the charities. The campaign including this film won three awards at EVCOM recently including the Grand Prix. It's now up for a #charityfilmaward - please watch and vote for it here. Its message continues to be relevant as the pandemic revs up again. https://smileymovement.org/organisations/makeitblue-cic
  • What did you do in the war, Mama?

  • Launch of CBA Gin
    Launch of CBA GinDeveloped during the lockdown, these new infused gins have just been launched. As the copywriter, I created the concept of 'going in person', capturing the zeitgeist of the times when we can't travel.
