 I'm an award winning comedy writer and producer and the co-creator of MODERN HORROR STORIES on Comedy Central, an 11 part online sketch series and TV pilot that has been broadcast worldwide.

Most recently I have written two 30 min episodes of young adult comedy dramas for BBC iPlayer (Flatmates) and CBBC (Almost Never) and I co-wrote series 3 of the award winning Radio 4 sitcom 'Ability' with Britain's Got Talent winner Lee Ridley (Lost Voice Guy), which played on BBC Radio 4 / BBC Sounds.

 

For this year's Red Nose Day I co-wrote the Derry Girls zoom sketch and I also wrote/produced/directed this year's Cannes Lions Awards live shows. Last year, we wrote the Netflix/BBC One Stranger Things sketch for Sport Relief including cameos for Jennifer Saunders, Orlando Bloom and Emma Thompson. I have also written on Channel 4's Reasons to be Cheerful with Matt Lucas and have worked as main studio writer on The Jonathan Ross show (ITV). I am currently working on numerous original sitcom and comedy drama projects in development with various production companies with my writing partner Daniel Audritt

After graduating from the National Film and Television School Writing and Producing Comedy course, I went on to write a number of sketches for the LOVIE award-winning Comic Relief Originals series including Stephen Hawking's New Voice which aired on BBC One & NBC America, starring Stephen Fry, Michael Caine, Rebel Wilson and a host of other stars and viral hit 'A Modern Dating Horror Story' which was viewed over 250M times around the world, and was featured by The Independent, Stylist, Viral Thread and many other viral news sites.

With my writing partner Daniel, I was nominated for Debut Writer in the 2020 Edinburgh TV Festival New Voices Awards and shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe comedy writing award as well as the David Nobbs Memorial Comedy Writing Prize. 

 

I've also co-written a young adult sitcom pilot of "Numskulls" for Beano, a broadcast sitcom pilot for BBC Radio 4 (Wisebowm: The Struggle is Real) and two series of Takeshi's Castle for Comedy Central as well as entertainment show Gods of The Game and their all female sketch show. 

I write and perform with sketch group Northern Power Blouse who were finalists in the 2020 Leicester Square Sketch Off Competition and recently appeared on BBC Three's Laugh Lessons.

I was also shortlisted for the inaugural BBC Caroline Aherne Bursary for Funny Northern Women and I'm a contributing writer for the New York based satirical site Reductress. 

In addition, I manage production company BoxJack Productions and create branded content and comedy sketches for online and broadcast.
