I am a highly creative producer, strategist, writer and director with an established background in working with some of the UK’s most respected comedy and entertainment talent. I specialise in youth orientated content and previous credits include 'Horrible Histories', 'So Awkward', 'FM' - which I co-created for ITV2 starring Chris O’Dowd, 'Blowout', starring Greg McHugh and Susan Calman and three series of 'Sorry I've Got No Head'. I have extensive experience of conceiving, pitching, developing and creating branded content and working closely with clients, including Microsoft, Yahoo and Aviva, to deliver engaging and entertaining work. I've developed and directed scripted comedies and pilots for companies including The Comedy Unit, So Television, Lime Pictures, Brown Eyed Boy and Hat Trick and have a detailed knowledge of the vibrant stand-up circuit.Locked Pro Plan feature
