Writing

My writing work encompasses both non-fiction and fiction, across an array of mediums, formats and genres.

This has included articles, reviews, blog posts and general content, for numerous clients, often as a ghost-writer.

I’ve written short and feature-length films for-hire, audio sketches for radio and podcasts and promos. For several years now I have worked as an ad-hoc joke writer for the television panel show “Have I Got News For You”.

I regularly enter writing competitions as a way to challenge myself and practice my craft, and I’ve placed as a finalist and semi-finalist several times, winning twice.

Check the script samples page for examples of my writing.
