Working in development basically means it's my job to help you build a series or show that makes kids go "WOOOOHOOOO" whilst also making broadcasters nod appreciatively and use their Mont Blanc pens to sign nice and helpful cheques.

I've developed all kinds of shows in different ways, and across various age groups. I'm comfortable with both live action and animation


When it comes to my style or "voice", I specialise in building emotive, interesting, multi-dimensional characters (the key to everything), as well as finding the proper structure for different kinds of content, and injecting lots of love and wit into the world of a show.


I'm currently developing a wonderful animated series for 4-8s for Oddbod Creations, along with my own original pre-school series, in partnership with Interference Pattern.
