I've been a professional scriptwriter, working in many areas of the communications industry, since 1986. I've written extensively for exhibitions, visitor experiences, conferences, audio-visual and video programmes, new media, and print - and enjoyed a successful working relationship with many of the UK's leading production companies. I'm very happy working with senior executives at client companies, and I've got valuable background experience in production and photography.
I approach every project on its own merits - always adapting treatment and style to the needs of the intended audience and the client's requirements. Some projects start with a visual or staging idea; some develop out of detailed research; some require traditional commentary and presentation drafting; and some develop out of theatre and TV concepts, requiring interactive dialogue between presenters, actors, and other elements.
Because my background is in communications rather than a specific industry, I'm happy working with professionals from many different disciplines - including theatre designers, composers, directors, photographers, and programmers. I'm frequently asked to take on new subject matter, and I'm adept both at the research processes which inform the content, and the visual ideas that bring that content to life.
