I studied Scriptwriting for Film and Television (yes, that’s a thing) for three years at the Skillset Screen Academy and Centre for Excellence in Media Production at Bournemouth University, gaining a First class honours degree in 2009. During this time, I won a 4Talent-sponsored competition with a cross-platform group project called ‘Pandora’ and scored one goal for my 5-a-side team ‘Get Your Team Out.’ Witnesses agree that it happened.

In 2009, I was one of 38 people invited to take part in a cross-platform production course delivered by Crossover, funded by Skillset’s TV Freelance Fund, and in conjunction with Sheffield DocFest and 4Talent. Over the course of seven months, the other partipants and I designed creative, interactive experiences for television while taking part in pitching sessions, practical workshops, and masterclasses delivered by industry professionals. The course culminated in a final pitch to broadcast producers and commissioners in 2010.

I mainly write comedy and pun-based projects. I have, however, also written professional script reports, features for a comedy magazine, articles for print and online media, but am generally mainly focussed on trying not to get a job while I develop my own projects, which include short films, sitcoms, and feature-length screenplays. Probably my main ambition in life, however, is to retire. To this end, my regular unemployment represents a continuing personal success.
