Skills

I make stories happen in lots of ways:

I’m a writer – I’ve written novels, plays, a musical, interactive dramas, interactive fiction, social media drama, factual digital and broadcast content and screenplays. I’ve won some awards – and been short and longlisted for others – and I’ve completed a number of writer training and development schemes. Find out more here.

I’m a director – I edit, interpret and direct scripts, as well as directing my own scripts. I can devise work and also write and direct stories that respond to group collaboration. I can work with professional actors, actors in training and children and young people. Find out more here.

I’m a producer – I work freelance and employed, for large and small media organisations, on high-profile and complex projects. I also successfully produce my own work – from R&D to touring work. I am BAFTA and Royal Television Society nominated, for my work as a digital and broadcast producer. Find out more here.

I’m a facilitator – I work with large and small groups of children, young people and adults. I have specialist training and experience in working with people with learning disabilities. I am skilled at working with a wide range of participants and I have a skill for working in challenging settings. Find out more here.

I’m a script editor – I have worked with established scriptwriters and those new to writing, or new to the digital and broadcast industry. I interrogate scripts with an eye for revealing storytelling and encouraging writers to get to the heart of their stories. Find out more here.

I’m a coach, mentor and public speaker – I am trained and experienced in both coaching and mentoring styles of peer-to-peer collaboration and leadership. I regularly present talks on my work, or the work I produce for others. I can present to children, young people, the general public and my industry peers. My talks are informative, entertaining and unique to who I am, as a person and storyteller. Find out more here.
