Work history

Currently

Producer, Project Manager and Scriptwriter

Freelance/audio Factory

May 2011
  • I co-founded production company Audio Factory with Dave Perry. In 2013, we produced a series for BBC CBeebies Radio, titled 'Poppy's Play Dates', which is an original concept I devised and then co-wrote. In early 2014, I was the lead producer for the audiobook version of 'The Bargain', which was written by New York Times Bestselling author Mary Jo Putney who personally commissioned Audio Factory. In addition to this we have also produced audio books for Amazon subsidiary Brilliance Audio in the US and worked on projects with creative agencies including the internationally renowned BD Network. As a freelance producer I have overseen corporate video productions for Perry's Recycling and Knightstone Housing Association. I worked alongside filmmaker James Barber on these and we have also produced five short films for which I was the scriptwriter.

2014

Founder & Contributing Editor

The FIX

Jan 2013 - Sep 2014
  • In 2013 I created an independent not for profit online entertainment magazine The Fix, which covers the Bristol and Somerset areas in the South West of England. Having established strong relationships with the region’s notable entertainment venues, including O2 Academy Bristol, The Tobacco Factory Theatre and Watershed, the website has a core team of regular contributors that are entrusted to preview, interview and review content in this catchment area. I still contribute to The Fix.

2014

Contributing Editor & Publication Manager

The Basis

Jul 2011 - Jul 2014
  • In April 2014, I donated an entertainment based community magazine that I previously co-owned to a community and arts centre in Glastonbury. 'The Basis' is distributed to 6500 homes in the Street and Glastonbury area of Somerset and this donation was made on the grounds that a variation of internships would be offered to local people. These will include copywriting, journalism, graphic design, business management, new media and web design. In my time as manager and editor of 'The Basis' I presented over 60 local people with opportunities to write for the magazine, allowing them to build their portfolio and hone their craft. Contributors have gone on to write for NME, Central Somerset Gazette and Bristol City match day programmes et al. I also developed exciting commercial links with gig venues including O2 Academy Bristol and the likes of Burger King, Frankie & Benny's, Clarks Village, Millfield School, JD Wetherspoon and the Glastonbury Festivals Organisation. All have advertised in the publication.
