OH SHIT, IT'S A BIO.

I've always thought that people who enjoy writing Bio's must be sociopaths haven't you?

 

Don't worry this isn't my way of telling you that I am a sociopath, more an early admission that I hate writing Bio's... 

 

I think it's because you are supposed to take yourself quite seriously in a Bio, and one of my lifes goals is not to do that, and so we find ourselves at something of an impass...

 

So to compromise, here's a bullet point list of some vaugely interesting work related facts about me:

 

  • I started writing at age 16, when a drama teacher thought it was a good alternative to expulsion.

  • I wrote a play called "Party People" which was staged by The Royal Court Theatre

  • "Party People" was adapted into a short film, directed by Suzi Roberson, which won a bunch of awards

  • I  decided to learn more about "how things are made" and worked in Production from Runner to Producer.

  • I started my own Production company, right at the start of the "Digital Revolution", and won a couple of awards.

  • I worked writing Viral Advertising for The Viral Factory, and won a lot more awards.

  • I came up for an Idea for a comedy series and self funded, wrote, and edited a pilot, which both 3Arts (USA), and BigTalk(UK) wanted to option.

  •  I have written a few features on commission, started my own creative services company and always stayed silly by making content for the online audiences.

  • I  once worked as a couture model for Christian Dior.

  • Now, i'm a comedy writer who also makes a load of funny stuff.

 

Obviously, there's quite a lot more to it than that, so if you want to know more, get in touch.
