05/10/23: As part of the NFTS/Channel 4/BBC Freelancer Focus, I'm chairing a panel discussion about the transferable skills from TV to immersive, games and virtual production.

I'm a BAFTA award-winning and Emmy-nominated television series/executive producer and immersive creative lead, specialising in inventive storytelling for new and emerging platforms.

Currently I am spending most of my time as creative development director at Factory 42, working across a wildly exciting XR/immersive slate.

Before that, I was series producer for two seasons of sci-fi mystery adventure Silverpoint with Zodiak UK for BBC, ZDF and Hulu. A Sunday Times Critic's Choice, the series has also been recognised with two BAFTA nominations, a Kidscreen nomination, and a win at the 2023 RTS NI awards. Watch the trailer here.

Notable previous projects include
- executive producer of multi-generational sitcom Goldie's Oldies with VIS UK for Nickelodeon
- executive producer and producer of BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated interactive television comedy Secret Life of Boys for Zodiak UK (five series + specials)
- audio watermarking second-screen quiz apps Summer Challenge and Gumball VIP for Cartoon Network
- 2D/3D educational coding puzzler The Doctor and the Dalek for BBC Learning
- comedy adventure game Merchant of Menace for CBBC.

I also consult on digital product strategy, creative ideas and pitches for clients that include Pottermore, CBBC, Cartoon Network and BBC Worldwide.
