I have a long history in broadcast TV, dating back to the 1990s – my first short film – ‘Family Style’ – which starred a then unknown actor called ‘Ewan McGregor’ was broadcast in CH4 in the 1994. From there, I joined the writing team of Emmerdale (their youngest ever core team writer) – I then moved onto Eastenders (writing the original episode where ‘Alfie’ told ‘Kat’ he loved her).
I was part of the team revamped Hollyoaks in the mid ’00s – and introduced the McQueen girls, and gangster Warren Fox – during my time on Hollyoaks the viewing figures tripled.
I’ve worked as s scriptwriter on produced and theatrically released feature films, I sold a screenplay to Miramax at age 21 – and later had a film optioned by a major US studio. As a writer and director, I’ve completed a series of low budget horror movies based on H.P. Lovecraft stories that have developed a cult following online.
Creative scripts for corporate video
On top of all of this – I’m the go to scriptwriter for hire for creative corporate videos.
