I have 20 years' experience of writing for young people across all media – from preschool to teen, from TV to games.
I am currently part of the writing team on a new television adaptation of Paddington for Nick Jr. and I am really excited to be working with author Gunnar Helgason on a new series of Tulipop – to be broadcast on RÚV in Iceland.
Having written the pilot scripts and bible, I worked on all 78 episodes of Tinpo – now showing on CBeebies. Following that, I wrote a series of Care Bears shorts for Cloudco Entertainment and I am currently working with them again to redevelop another heritage brand. Having worked on the show continuously since series 17, I recently wrote my 50th episode of Thomas (the Tank Engine) & Friends.
I was thrilled to write 19 gorgeous episodes of Puffin Rock – winner of Best New Preschool Series and Best Animated Preschool Series at Kidscreen 2016 and nominated for three Annies in 2017 including Writing in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production for my episode The First Snow.
I bring the benefit of my screenwriting experience to work as a Development Producer and Creative Consultant. I have worked with numerous individuals, independents and broadcasters to bring their ideas to the screen. I am currently developing an existing IP for for CAKE Entertainment.
For fun, I go and see bands, take improvisation classes, write short stories and play games. Anyone playing Cuphead is probably doing better at it than me right now.
