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!
