About me

Hi! I'm a Scriptwriter, Head Writer, Development Consultant, and Content Creator working in Children's Television, Animation, Youtube, Video Games, Interactive and Educational spaces.  Currently Head Writer for Nickelodeon and iQIYI's new series DEER SQUAD, now working with the team on scripts for Season 3.

I have written on top-rated Emmy and BAFTA-winning shows produced by animation production companies and broadcasters all over the world for over 20 years.  Currently working as a Development Consultant on several new projects as well as developing my own IP.

It's always exciting to be brought in on new projects at the early development stage - building characters and worlds for kids is so rewarding and exciting!

 

Drop me a note if you are looking to develop your new project!

The Next Step - Interactive Game

This was a great project to work on, a dance game combined with RPG elements.  

I wrote the interactive story and script and had great fun writing for all the characters.

Children's Books

Author and Illustrator of over 20 children's books

I love writing children's books - my first book, The Smelly Sprout, was inspired by my son who refused to eat sprouts when he was younger.  I told him a story to feel sorry for sprouts and it worked, he gobbled them up!  My latest book, Smelly Santa, is out now.
