I'm James

A writer, developer and creator for children's television.

"Imaginative, creative, and very funny..."

That's how an esteemed head writer on an award-winning show described me. Other editors, studios and producers have said I'm "a delight to work with", "invaluable in the writers room" and "taller than we expected!".

Writing for...

A little bit about me

I'm from London, but live in Scotland with my wife and son.


For years I worked with kids as both a nanny and a children’s entertainer, and let me tell you...nothing matches the pressure of the London under-5s party scene.


In 2008 I graduated with a Masters in Feature Film Screenwriting, and built a career writing stories for everything from film and TV to immersive theatre, educational apps and online articles.


I broke into kids TV in 2016, and haven't looked back since.
